Cool find

My uncle gave me a 3 band Enfield for Christmas when I was 13. It was found in (very) southern Indiana beneath the floor of his father in laws barn in a wooden box some time in the late 50s, when the barn was being torn down to build a new one. It had been cut down to Musketoon or artillery carbine length. It's still in pretty good shape save for a small chunk of the stock missing right behind the hammer. Working lock and somewhat working trigger. The crown, date and TOWER are still clearly visible on the lock. When it was found it had a mini ball loaded....which my uncle had a gunsmith pull and disposed of well before I received it.
