"J. W. Flannery 2013". This is a mate to the one recently sold.

as in some parts of western Penn. The barrel is a swamped 44" long in .45
caliber. It has a touch hole liner. The lock is a Chamber's Golden Age style.
Mounts are brass. The barrel has an aged finish and the
lock and other steel parts are deeply blued. It has a gold band at the
muzzle. The double set triggers will fire
