Description 
Swivel Barrel Muzzleloader with a smooth barrel over a rifled barrel, extensive silver inlay ornamentation and engraved designs on metal components, hammer decorated like fish. Marked: C. Baker. Is missing 1 ramrod. The two barrels on this Swivel Barrel Muzzleloader rotate, allowing a person two shots; this was a great benefit when hunting. One barrel is rifled and the other is smoothbore. The German silver (nickel) adornment and curly maple stock made this an expensive firearm.
