Greetings eveyone, This is my first post, nice to be a part "Civil War Talk." So I recently added an original P53 enfield to my collection. To my surprise it is a very rare LAC. from a large old collection of muskets, that a reputable dealer bought and was now selling. Lockplate stamped LA. Co. 1862, stock with roundel cartouche, and rounded washers on the lockplate screws. However the barrel does not match the stock or hammer in condition, stock has quite a bit of burnout behind nipple, hammer is a replacement, its not the plain london armory hammer , and is in well used shape like the stock. No LAC. stampings on barrel or rear sight. disasembly revealed on bottom of barrel G CARR, stamped and some faint hashmarks. There is a lot of blueing left on barrel, looks like it was not fired much. Stock appears to have what looks like fresh cuts in wood for barrel fitting maybe. There is also what looks to be a U.S. Gov. cartouche on left stock flat Civil war provenance maybe, looks like LL in an oval. Opinion on is this a post war piece together or maybe confederate refurbished late in the war. Why would it have the wrong hammer and probably barrel ,but stock and lockplate seem 100 percent correct. Barrel bands are the Palmer bands. All brass very dark patina matching stock.
