It is in bits at the moment to clean the 180 years of dirt off it so here are a few auction pics.

You can see from the area around the lock that there are remains of paint or coloured varnish. The cheek recess also still has a good amount of this finish left. I am not going to remove it, I'm just curious.

The touch hole was blocked when it arrived, upon cleaning the barrel I discovered it still had a small powder charge in it :-D
