I took the picture of the lock and manipulated it in a photo program to give a negative image.
the mark on the lock appears to be Henry Parker over warranted.
there was a Henry Parker working in Trenton NJ in the 1840's to his death in 1860.
possible only the lock was made by him but then almost anything is possible. the entire gun may have been a one off by him ore someone else. UPS has it in their grinder mill. hope to see it Monday the 22nd.
feel like a kid the day before the day before Christmas!

UPS finally delivered. was working in the garage and listening to Steppenwolf loud (wife was gone to town) and came in for lunch. found it leaning against the front door!
of course the first thing i did was scope the bores. with some TLC both will be shootable! right now the bores are soaking insolvent, the lock is in little pieces and the transfer nose for the bottom barrel is half made. sorry for the upside down and sideways pictures. too tired to fix them
