 CONDITION: Fine. The barrel
retains 90% original blue finish
with thinning to brown on the
balance. The remaining metal
surfaces retain 70% original blue finish
with a smooth gray patina on the balance.
The buttplate has a chipped toe. The wood is also
fine with a repair at the toe, some minor handling marks, and
crisp carving. Mechanically excellent. A rare factory No. 1 engraved, gold
inlaid and carved deluxe Winchester Model 1895 rifle that is missing from even the
most advanced collections. A rare recently discovered work of Winchester artistry that is a must have for the serious collector.
Estimate: 85,000 - 130,000
