The lock is signed Parker , Field & Co. 1856 on it's tail area .  The 36 1/2" barrel has two British proof marks at it's breech. The lock functions properly on both full and half cock. Overall the gun has taken on a nice golden patina.  Sitting Bull  owned a Parker Field & Co.  trade Gun.  It just sold for $162,500 at Heritage auctions.
