Model 1795 muskets having an integrally forged flashpan and the triggerguard shown in the photos are commonly called Type Three muskets.

I have a model 1795 made in 1812, on the lock.  It is in poor condition and had been re-converted back to flint from percussion.  Has an incorrect brass TG and many patches in the wood. But still full length and all in one pc.  It is a great wall hanger.
Any ideas on the value of these things?
Not that I care but I recently started thing that way cause when I am gone I want my family to know?

Bigmon---Check out Lot#26 on Cowan's May 6th auction to get an idea of the value range. It is a reconverted 1812 dated Springfield M1795 that seems to have its original furniture.

My personal opinion, at least when it comes to Springfield flint muskets, they are worth more as a percussion alteration than a recon.

I have often wondered why the Harper's Ferry Model 1795 has less market value
than the Springfield ??  I have one dated 1816 in excellent original condition.
Not looking to sell, just curious.

All the best

Somehow these pictures disappeared from my original post on May 2nd.
