Click on an image to enlarge
This is a cool looking weapon! It is an original Civil War military rifle made by the firm of Lamson, Goodnow & Yale of Windsor, Vermont. This is the pattern of rifle known to collectors as the "Special Model 1861 Contract Rifle-Musket". L.G.&Y. only made about 50,000 of these .58 caliber rifles between 1862 and 1864. The lockplate has the "L.G.& Y." maker's mark to go along with the Windsor, Vermont production location. It also has the Union eagle along with the "US" mark and the 1864 production date. The action works crisply on all positions. The barrel of the gun is full-length with a pleasing dark patina all over. It has the original front sight intact and the rear sight has one of the two leafs intact as well. At the breech of the barrel it has the correct and matching 1864 production date stamped into the metal. You can see the inspector stampings as well. On the flat of the barrel it has the "STEEL" marking as well as the "L.F.R." inspector initials. These are the initials of Lafayette F. Rogers who approved the gun for military use. Inside the barrel it still has the lands and grooves still crisply visible. On the underside of the musket it has the original two sling swivels hanging on. It has a nice full-length original ramrod in the channel underneath the barrel. The stock is an attractive piece of walnut with a medium tone color all over. This is a very pleasing looking weapon from the Lamson, Goodnow & Yale Company with a nice clear 1864 production date with a pleasing color all over.
