I recently acquired this early Schuetzen rifle, and I need some help deciphering some of the engraving. It has two names engraved on the barrel. One of which appears to be "E. a Schnanden", and I can't make out the other, but it has the date of 1850. It has a heavily engraved hammer that appears to be a dog's head. That line in the hammer is not a crack, but rather a fold from when it was forged. The side plate is a serpent with a bear or tiger head. It has engraving on nearly all of the metal parts. I believe it is .42 caliber. Any information would be a great help! Also, I would be interested to know what a piece like this would be valued at. Thanks!
