This is my first post. I don't know what I'm doing, but here's my need.
Looking for Harpers Ferry Musket, smooth bore, has eagle on side plate and I think 1852 or 1853. It has distinguishing Mark on stock. The initials
JAL are carved on stock. This gun has been in our family since the civil war.
Will pay any reasonable price to get it back. It was accidently sold at
a Government auction in Orlando, of Port Charlotte, Fl, my email is
if you have any info.
