Dauphin County Flintlock Signed "Shell"

This is an attractive Dauphin County long gun with a fancy patchbox design similar to Peter Berry's well-known box. I believe this rifle was built by Martin Shell, but it could have been one the younger Shells early in his career. It is beautifully signed in script, but the first initial or name is gone. It was re-converted using a Chambers lock, the sideplate is replaced, the ramrod is replaced, and there's a small repair at the toe (wood and brass). The most interesting thing about this gun is that the forestock broke in front of the rear ramrod thimble and it was kept in use after adding two forward ramrod thimbles to the barrel. The rear ramrod thimble may have had a period repair and the upper barrel channel has some missing wood. Sights are missing, but dovetails are in good shape (including an extra one at the rear position!). Big, rifled bore and the barrel is 40" long. A couple of silver inlays, some incise carving at the wrist, buttstock and forestock mouldings. Lowered price 6-28-14.
