Wow! That coaching rifle is cool. But the price of approx $7300 US is uncool except for a rabid collector. Now the eagle powder horn really catches my eye. Thats practical artwork for sure. Thanks for showing!

Here's a weird flintlock that I've always like;


The oldest folding stock that I can find anyways.
