thanks for the response but: i am shocked, a collector i spoke tell's me it's an original musket, i think so to, when i bought this weapon in a antique store in Holland i saw at that moment that the loadstick is very damaged on the end, coused by powderslime, also by the firing-part. This weapon had fired many times in history then. And (you can't see it ) but the stamps are very small and deep and has many details. Stamp off copie's are big and not so deep. The stamps are good, butt hard to get a good photo, that small. One stamp was so dirty, it was first mistaken for a dirty dent. So maybee is this weapon a mixed off (replaced) parts butt the barrel is made in England. Greetings, Mark.
