It does have the Ordnance Department broad arrow. The rear of the lock is marked TOWER. Forward there is a crown over GR. Markings on the lock are clear and easy to see. The brass barrel is proofed with a LONDON marking. Action is smooth and tight. It works perfectly. Wood is in pretty nice condition, especially for a piece made in the early half of the 1800's. The brass barrel is in very good condition. You will like the blunderbuss. It will make a great addition to your collection.
