This arrived today it's my Birthday gift from the whole family. My Birthday is not until the 30th, but no one could wait.
It's a original US Revolutionary war British short land pattern tower Brown Bess flintlock musket marked to the 62nd Reg't
of foot. The 62nd under the command of Gen. John Burgoyne lost to the American rebels at the battle of Saratoga 1777

An interesting combination of round balls and ballets. Are they both for the derringer? The ballets look like a larger diameter.

It is great to see all the BP weapons. Thanks to all for posting them.

They came with the derringer,and since I have not shot the derringer yet I don't even know if they are for it.
