    Anyone know of an online list of proofmarks?

    Visited the wife's grandparents today, and her grandad asked if I could help identify one of his many antique firearms. It is probably a Brown Bess, but I cannot be sure.

    It is an 80 caliber musket, with several identifying proofmarks, initials, and symbols. It has "1828" stamped on it in several places, as well as a crown (no tower) proofmark on the barrel and the action. The other common marking is a script capital "T".

    I am pretty sure I jotted down enough info to identify it, but I cannot find a website with pictures of European proofmarks anywhere.

    I know it ain't a Marlin, but I would appreciate any direction any of you wise guys can provide.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Don't know if this will be of much help, but here's one:
