    RARE, C1842-1844 British East India Company (EIC) Bengal Presidency Troops, Lovell’s Type Pattern 1842 E .75” Calibre Muzzle Loading Percussion Musket With Hanoverian Catch & Leather Sling. Sn 17469:3 - 17469:3

    This is an original Pattern 1842 E .75” Calibre Muzzle Loading Percussion Musket. A Label that accompanies this musket states ‘Lovel type P42 E with Hanovarian Catch 1842-1844 Barrel by Barnett London Baker type ram rod. Issued to EIC Bengal Presidency Troops Troop H (or K) No.4 Man No.49 probably ex Nepalese hoard (IMA CRANMER). Note the P42 E is much less common than the F’. The musket measures 54 ½” overall length with a 39” round steel barrel. The barrel’s smooth bore has just light staining consistent with age and use. The barrel has a block fore sight and proof marks’. It has its original lock plate which is crisply marked with the EIC rampant Lion mark. It has its original walnut stock with brass furniture & heavy military hammer. It has an original iron ramrod and sling swivels fitted with leather sling. The wood brass furniture and barrel have markings (interpreted on the label as ‘issued to EIC Bengal Presidency Troops Troop H (or K) No.4 Man No.49’). The cocking and firing mechanisms work as they should. The metal work has even patina throughout. The price for this rare musket worthy of further research includes UK delivery. N.B As an antique musket no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 17469:3
