Muskets from Waterloo

Truly the Waterloo collectors Holy Grail is to own a musket used on the Battlefield on that fateful sunday. We are lucky enough to own 3.

Of the many thousands of Broken and discarded muskets lying on the field after the battle, some were picked up by the locals and used for Hunting . Many of these were shortened by sawing off part of the barrel. Many ended up in this condition and were presented to the Cotton Museum over the years.
