Appreciate the response. The inletting is perfect and there is no step to the receiver. The receiver is not the later variation with the pronounced step. That's the anomaly; it is clearly the earlier receiver, though not a high arch. The stock is the later cartouche but is definitely perfectly fitted to the non-stepped receiver. I've had several of the stepped receiver over the years.
The cartouche is the rounded rectangle. Is it possible this is an early rifle rebuilt under 1808 militia funds that was renumbered? Did they ever renumber these or possibly rebuild rifles utilizing old previously manufactured parts? I don't believe it to be an aftermarket parts gun.
