The old-fashioned shape and Renaissance-style decorative bone plates on the stock, as well as the aiming tube on the barrel confirm that the musket dates from the late 16th century. The serpentine for the match cord is missing and so is the trigger. The trigger guard is from a later period than the gun itself and it is clumsily fixed, initially the gun might have no guard at all.
