Just FYI, I corresponded with the guy selling the "copy" that I started off the thread with, and we discussed the provenence of the piece. He bought it from an auction house with an appraisal showing it was reputed to be a 19th century Brevette copy, yet the double diamond of ASM was found on the butt... so he agrees that he was screwed and has in turn removed his auction. Nice enough guy, makes flintlocks from scratch, just was not knowlagable enough about this to avoid being taken to the cleaners.
