Description                           Estimate: $2,000+          

Vermont Civil War Model 1861 Rifle-Musket by Lamson, Goodnow & Yale, no serial number, .58 caliber, 40″ barrel with a fine, bright bore that has some light freckling within the grooves. This rifle-musket has an 1863 dated “L.G. & Y., Windsor VT.,” marked lockplate with an undated barrel marked “V/P/(eagle head)” on the on the left flat. The metal has an overall dark pewter gray patina that has dark mottling and some freckling evenly scattered throughout the metal. There is some mild pitting surrounding the nipple and bolster with some further minor pitting along the correct tulip-head ramrod. The walnut stock is likewise in a very good condition with a nice added military oil finish added over numerous light handling marks and blemishes, heaviest on either side of the buttstock, as well as a deep scratch that is now filled with resin on the right side just behind the wrist, and a short but deep scratch on the left side at the first barrel band. The original inspector's cartouche, while faint, is still visible on the left side opposite the lock. The stock looks to be original and has not been sanded. A very nice example of a desirable US Civil War contract musket.
