Hi all I just got given these two, and although they are a bit out of the ordinary I thought someone on here might have some ideas as to age and value if any. They have been wall hangers from what I know, although haven't been messed with to make safe. I don't think it's required on muzzle loaders anyhow.
This one is a Percussion cap action. It is inscribed "Richards" on the side plate and "London" on the top of the barrel. The barrel starts with eight flats the sixteen.
This one is a flintlock and judging by the lack of decoration I guess is military. The only marking is the number 404 on the stock.
JUST CHECKED, BOTH GUNS ARE SMOOTH BORE.
Any ideas ladies and gentlemen?
