Re: is my flintlock antique or a fake?
Sorry, but yes, it is a wall hanger. It was never intended to be a "fake" in the sense that it could be passed off as a real gun. It is just a cast decoration that is made in the shape of a gun. "Guns" like that, copies of guns of different eras, are frequently seen in restaurants or sports bars with a "pirate" or "cowboy" motif. It might be worth $25.
