What does this mean?

Dear Braden,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. My sincere apologies for the delay with the appraisal.

The presented object appears to be a Remington Model 1863 Zouave with a .58 caliber. This rifled musket, better known as a Zouave, was produced 1863. The lock plate is dated 1863, and is stamped “Remington’s” with a U.S. eagle. The inspector’s cartouche on the stock is not clearly readable.
Comparable objects were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in medium to good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 1.000 to 1.500 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.
