    Hello
    I am trying to id an old muzzle loader we have hanging up at my dads house. Do not know anything about it. It looks to be real but I don't really know a lot about guns. On the right side there is a marking "ARCHER" and on the top left side of the barrel there are two stamped markings, not names but kind of looks like a crest or some type of mark identifying ownership. I have researched and I can not find anything. With a lack of gun knowledge, it looks like somebody has tried to rethread where the cap or flint would go into the chamber and the barrel seems to be very thin. Could be a decorative piece instead of real gun but just trying to find more info. Can post pic if needed. Any help is treaty appreciated.

    Thanks
