The top of the barrel has the two-line address/1894 patent date ahead of the rear sight and "38-55" at the breech. The Winchester proofs are stamped on the barrel and receiver near the breech. The upper tang is stamped with the three-line model/trade mark information. Serial number is stamped on the underside of the frame. Mounted on a smooth forearm and straight grip stock with carbine buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Fine. The carbine retains 50% of the original blue finish with minor muzzle wear, scattered scratches and dings, very light pitting, and the receiver faded to a smooth silver patina. The markings are clear. The wood is very good with scattered scratches, dings and pressure dents, and a small crack on the left side of the stock near the trigger. Mechanically excellent.
