A teacher that I work with approached me with this musket. I am not really interested in American Civil War militaria, so I passed on it and agreed to help her identify it/ give her an idea of the value of it so she doesn't get ripped off if she decides to sell it.
I know it's in rough shape, but could anyone be so kind as to help us identify it/ put a value on it?
I am not really knowledgeable when it comes to pre-WWII militaria, so I'm posting the pictures here. Please help!
