IIRC, the original US country of origin (COO) law dates to the early 1900's so a "Made in Belgium" marking would not appear on a flintlock firearm in their period of general use. Since antiques are exempt (no, an original DaVinci painting does not have to have MADE IN ITALY stamped into it), any flintlock with the COO stamp would be a modern reproduction.
