The Winchester oval proof is marked on the top barrel flat and receiver at the breech.

Blue finish with casehardened lever, forend cap and buttplate, and mounted with a smooth walnut forearm with steel end cap and straight grip stock with a crescent buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Very good. The rifle retains 50% faded original blue finish with some high edge wear and scattered areas of thinning to a smooth plum patina. The forend cap, lever and buttplate have a smooth brownish patina with hints of original case colors on the buttplate tang. The re-oiled wood is also very good with some scattered minor dings, dents and scratches. The markings are crisp and clear. The action is fine.
