The Winchester factory proof is stamped on top of the barrel and receiver at the breech, the barrel has the nickel steel barrel marking followed by "405 W.C.F." on the left side, and the receiver has the two-line address/patent dates marking on the left side. The three-line model/patent marking is on the upper tang and the serial number is on the lower tang.

Rating Definition:

Fine. The rifle retains 70% original blue finish with a smooth brown patina on the balance. A minor chip is missing from the buttplate. The refinished wood is very good with a hairline crack on the wrist, a couple small slivers of wood missing near the upper tang and some minor handling marks. Mechanically fine.
