A Dienstglas, 6x30 with Strichplatte, marked cxn and triangle*, Busch in Rathenow,
Wehrmacht issue. One marking has been scratched out, the leather buttonhole fob
is missing. The price is around 70 Euro. I had several of these many years back, also
complete with the buttonhole fob.
Unfortunately, already sold, will have to look out for a new one.

An old print of Wandsbek Markt, discovered in Purkersdorf/Niederösterreich, how did it get there? My theory, brought there posssibly by Familie Neusüß in 1942 to Langenlebarn when they moved there. In April 1945 everything had to be left behind, and this somehow got from Langenlebarn to nearby Purkersdorf.

The package arrived today - only to find that they sent the wrong gun! The gun sent was 150,- less than the item I ordered. Instead of sending me item no. 682, I received no. 692, not just a difference in number and price, a completely different item - instead of the Prussian 1809 musket, I received an early English Brown Bess, which had been converted to percussion in 1840. Most English marks were erased, apart from Tower and G.R., crown scarcely visible, exra stamped J.D.1840, which was the year of conversion and presumably the initials of the Büchsenmacher, who carried out the conversion. The hammer is identical to the later Prussian 1809 models. Two screws are missing, one to the barrel root and the lower trigger guard plate, as well as two barrel retaining pins. Otherwise in fairly good condition for age. The ramrod is about 6 inches too short for the barrel, of unknown origin. It is well known that English  Brown Bess muskets were supplied as war aid (Hilfslieferungen) to Prussia during 1813 and 1814, supplemented by battlefield pick-ups, as well as captured French M.1777 muskets, Austrian and older Prussian muskets. These were later converted to percussion in the early 1840s and remained in service for several decades, the last percussion weapons till about 1873. Gun is of course, smooth bore, as with most early weapons.

Hopefully you can get the correct rifle you ordered. I had a similar issue not long ago when I ordered a specific date rifle and got the complete opposite of what I ordered. I have had some 3 band tower muskets before, nicely made weapons. Never had the Brown Bess one.

The problem has now been resolved, and I hope to be getting the Gew.1809, my original order, soon.

Finally arrived, Gew. M. 1809 u/M, lockplate signed Neiße, Rather polished condition throughout, most of the stampings still legible. There are probably further stamps under the barrel, would have to be removed to examine. Date on left of breach looks like 1823 or 1825, barely legible. Was converted to percussion, probably around 1840.

What are the markings on the stock?

I haven't examined them properly yet, but they look a bit unclear. Some of the markings on the fittings have been obliterated by excessive cleaning and polishing, really overdone.
The crown above "Neiße" is barely visible.

Markings on right side of butt - K 358
To the right side of butt is - FW under Crown, again on the wood behind the breech and a crowned 'P', presumably for Potsdam
Left side of barrel behind breech, date, barely visible, 1823 or 1825 and below this,
a 'B' under crown, presumably Berlin (arsenal or proof marks).
The lip of the steel buttplate is marked - 721, the 2 slightly erased.

image.png.0aea05b03a7d2a4fd8336b176ca9582b.png

The example I had several years ago, Potsdam, 1834, converted at Neiße, 1843. The ramrod had an endpiece made of Neusilber, which was somewhat decorative, this other example is plain iron, hollow and open. Brass buttplate marked to L.W.I.R.6, with bayonet.

These items just arrived. A zink cap eagle and an M.44 breasteagle.

Cap eagle still to be properly fitted, some restoration work is also necessary. Missing are the cords and sidebuttons as well as an Edelweiß. Very hard to find the original pinholes, as the material is very close-woven.
