I went to a small-town meeting the other day, and couldn't help but notice the wall case behind the Selectmen's chairs.  The town hall was founded in early 1700's.

Charleville muskets were around from 1717-1840.

There seems to be a mix of muskets.  Wish I could have gotten closer to take a better pic, but maybe Neutral someone could identify something scratch  from this blow-up...
