A Completely Original 'Kentucky' Flintlock Rifle by George Fisher of Shenandoah County, Virginia, circa 1820.
The rifle is in original flint, not reconverted. Beautiful full maple stock with great color and patina. One small split to the forestock with a period 'staple' repair. The ramrod appears to be original. The lockplate is stamped 'James Golcher.' Overall length: 59 1/4". A nearly identical example by Fisher is featured on p.98 of 'Gunsmiths of Virginia' by James Whisker published in 1992. Also included is a research note signed by Wallace Gusler in 1974.
