Don't know if this is true or not. I read once that firearms from this era were often stored on the mantle or on pegs driven into brick/stone chimneys. The air was always warmer near the chimney/fireplace, so moisture never had a chance to condense on the weapon, hence, no rust.

May or may not be true, but on the surface, seems to make sense.
