    Bubba, you didn't give us much to work with, but to me it looks like it could be one of those Enfields that got bastardized from flintlock to percussion.

    What hunter said- normally crown proof marks mean Enfield.
    Try looking it up and see if gun broker has any listed Under Enfield black powder or any combination of such

    Probably need more close up pictures.. So many old weapons out there.. They were cherished and passed down from Father too Son..
    Could have some Colonial parts?

    That could be a good possibility-many of the black powder Enfield's were copied at Khyber Pass,and are sought after for there collectability more than a shooter
