I donít think these are that old, because of the coil springs. Iím just guessing, that they came off of a TC or Italian made muzzleloader.
I know for sure they didnít come off a CW are musket

Some of the early REPRODUCTIONís used the same markings as the originals. Remington threaten to sue them.after that the changed the markings, to avoid issues.

That piece of brass was used to infill where the pan and touchhole were originally. The brass infill looks different on your lock than most I have seen. Iíll try to post pictures later of a few examples I have

Thanks, the 1838 that is already attached to a musket was also a flintlock conversion, it doesn't have a separate housing for the nipple. The nipple is drilled straight into the barrel and the hammer/nipple is closer to the center of the barrel than the ones made specifically for percs.

Correct, thatís how the conversion were made.
If you were ever inclined to shoot one of these converted muskets please make sure that the threads allow the nipple to thread completely.
This is the week area, of these conversion muskets.
Sometimes more material is needed to built up this area around the touch hole, so the nipple can get threaded completely. If not when shot the pressure could blow the nipple completely out of the threads.

I have a few 1816 Harperís Ferry models that were converted. I enjoy shooting them often.

I'd be iffy about firing any of them. If I did fire any of these I wouldn't put a round in there, only half charge of powder and some patches. The stocks on most of them have cracks, some were repaired. Also don't know how strong the metal is in the area of the nipple because I can see it dips down some on the 1838 and the nipple has 2 threads sticking out on the right side of the barrel.
