New acquisition, and quite pimped up with a reblued barrel and an odd bronze-colored color-casehardening on all of the iron furniture.
Lockplate (both sides) and the bottom of the barrel carry Potts & Hunt markings. Barrel breech seems to have all of the expected stamps.
Only the nosecap and trigger assembly have three filed assembly markings.
Stock looks too nice externally -- maybe a refinished replacement, although the buttplate is well-fitted. The nosecap, on the other hand, is not completely filled out by the forearm.?
Barrel channel chewed up with some scattered glass bedding (strengthening or repair). No internal or external markings that I can see.
Decent 3-groove bore.
Holes in front band look suspect to me - and the missing bar has marred the bottom of the barrel. The outboard face of the bayonet lug on the front band is numbered "350."
When I disassembled the lock, I found that the bridle shaft had apparently frozen in the tumbler and snapped in two at some point. But the two broken ends (one dished and the other convex) seem to still work OK when the lock is assembled (anyone know of a good smith who could repair / replace the broken tumbler?)
The ramrod seems to be an improper replacement with some unintelligible markings on it.

I would appreciate any thoughts /musings -- and let me know if additional images would be helpful.
