US Army Model 1842?
Hey guys, found an interesting specimen for $50.00. The date of 1854 and the eagle on the side is what caught my eye. Under the barrel it reads FS 73 and i noticed an H, E, and a P or F on the back of the barrel near the recoil plate. Maybe a .54cal? Appears to be missing a barrel band and a knob on the butt of the grip. Also its got what appears to be trench art inscribed on the barrel. Any info would be great, thank you.
