I recently purchased a canoe that I believe is a Chestnut but not to sure which one. I have pictures of it at the link below

A Chestnut should/might have a 4 digit number on the lower part of the bow stem piece

It should have a "beveled" underside to the bow and stern deck plates for ease of lifting.

That appears to have some pretty wide planking? It does have the typical decks to it. What are the dimensions? ( Length, width, depth) Rib width would help too and spacing.
Did it have seats with it?

Many Chestnuts were never marked with a sn.

Decks seem Chestnut and also inwales.

Here is Dan Millers chart of Chestnut models

Looks like it has been "glassed". Need to get that off and get canvas back on it. Decks have the Chestnut undercut at the outside edges. Any other holes in the inwales to show thwart or seat locations?

Probably a Pal. The ribs are 3/8's thick, 1-1/2 inch wide, and spaced 1-1/2 inches apart. They are not tapered.

Prospectors have wider, tapered ribs.

Pals are 16 ft long, 12 inches deep, with a beam of 34 inches. Bow & stern cane seats, 2 thwarts, flat shoe keel, # 10 canvas, gloss finish. Ribs 3/8"" x 1 1/2"" spaced 1 1/2"" apart.
