Patchbox is identical to the patchbox attributed to the Lauck family in the “Lauck Rifle Posting.”This rifle with an identical patchbox was sold on auction.  I went to the Museum of the Shenandoah, in Winchester, VA, and noted that the Lauck rifle on display had very similar characteristics to this rifle. What is particularly interesting is the barrel inscription of “Peter LyJack.” I could not find a Peter LyJack in my research. I found reference to a Revolutionary War gunmaker in Baltimore, MD named Peter Lydeck. I am not sure how likely it would be that this is the same person. Is anyone familiar with a barrel maker named Peter LyJack?

Here is the URL to a documentary history of Lydick by Dr. James Whisker:
