~ Original French M1777 "Charleville" Musket Lock (Converted to cap lock), Side Plate, Trigger & Trigger Guard ~

There are several markings on these parts. Inspector stamps and engraving on the lock plate.  The armory where this musket was originally manufactured appears to be "Culemborg" as marked on the lock plate however it is hard to read.  I spent hours researching this and could not find any other specimens from this armory to confirm so it must have been a rare place that those muskets were made.  It was acquired in the Southern US so there is a chance this was a CSA converted musket as it also has the letters "EBC" on the lock plate that I could not identify.  Either way this musket most likely served through the Rev war, 1812 and possibly the Civil War as a cap conversion.  The parts are in nice condition for their age and the lock works nicely.

 Recently it was brought to my attention from a collector that these were made in the Culemborg (or sometimes spelled Kulemborg) arsenal in the Dutch city of Culemborg.

At the time the Netherlands were occupied by the French and the markings on these weapons date from between jan 1811 (when Napoleon had his brother abdicate as king of the Netherlands and made it part of the empire) and november 1813, when the French were forced to leave.
