A raised carved, flintlock Kentucky rifle by N. Stephenson

This rifle has beautiful raised carving at the rear of the cheek piece,  behind the tang, along the wrist and behind the rear ramrod thimble. It has a sliding wood patch box cover with engraved brass borders surrounded by finely inlaid brass wire. The deeply rifled, 45 caliber, 42 inch octagon barrel is signed N. Stephenson and has a flared muzzle.  The stock is made of a curly walnut with a nice drop to the 18th century style butt.
