Description:

The board is mounted in a wood frame measuring approximately 57 inches wide by 40 inches tall. A gold painted border is mounted around the green board which measures approximately 49 inches by 31 1/2 inches. The board displays a dark green background, red and white lettering and vignettes of game and hunting scenes (see image). The display consists of various cartridges and shotgun shells and nine containers of primers, each described below in white lettering. The lower right corner reads "FORBES CO. BOSTON." The back of the board has the original "PRESENTED WITH COMPLIMENTS OF THE WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO. PLEASE HANG IN A PROMINENT PLACE" paper label affixed to the center.

Rating Definition:

Fair. The refinished frame has replacement wood, and the gold frame has repairs and finish loss. The green board retains most of the lettering and images and the colors are vibrant overall. All the cartridges, shotgun shells and primers are accounted for. A must have for the serious Winchester collector.
