Patrick,

I Have Not seen this one before, so thanks for the photos!
What you have, I would have said I feel for certain, is the Charleville musket, model 1766-68.
But, as the experts say otherwise I defer!
This model I mentioned above has the extended tail to the nosecap that tucks into the middle band.
I do not know if this model had the rather forward looking and novel screws that also acted as pins for trigger and guard, Or if these were a later innovation.
I should look for photos of the off side.
The shield obliterated could mean it passing from service to another area, but I do not know.

Richard.
PS,
Can you post a photo of the lock, mortise, and lock work?
