This is a Confederate Enfield bought by the southern government through the firm of Sinclair Hamilton & Company and is so marked on the comb of the stock and on the stock opposite the lock with their type 3 stamp, along with a viewer's mark between the top and second barrel band. The viewer's mark is dim, but judging by the shape, it is probably the mark of Isaac Curtis. There is a name stamped in the ram rod channel that I can't make out, along with the assembly mark "XXIII". The barrel has the Birmingham proof marks and is gauged "25" indicating .577 caliber. On the belly of the stock is stamped with the maker's mark "John Marson". In the book "The English Connection" on page 100, John Marson is listed as a Birmingham Manufacturer's name found on weapons with Confederate provenance.
The metal has a nice dark patina overall, and the stock is in good shape. There is a knot in the stock along the top where it meets the barrel indicating sub-par quality control. It is a very rare thing to see Confederate Enfields marked in the manner that this one is.
