Description:

The cabinet door is numbered "100" on the top edge. It is constructed of hardwood, likely oak, with full length glass panels and a cathedral top with glass panels. Although the badge is missing (from the bottom) it is likely that this cabinet was manufactured by Walrus Manufacturing Co. It stands approximately 74 inches in height on four legs with brass sheathed feet, and each side is approximately 18 inches wide. On the inside is a four sided rack that will hold 20 long guns. All four sides are 5/8 inch thick and are marked "WINCHESTER" in white and black bordered red letters (door side appears to be in gold) with black lettered "PATENT APPLIED FOR" on a white background below. Marked "6984C" on the lower part of the cabinet beneath the base board.

Rating Definition:

Very good, some light wear to the wood, clear glass, the door functions well, and the replacement base board has some light staining. The lettering is all clear and the felt in the racks is faded but complete. The bottom of the case is a replacement and the inner edge of the rack is re-lined with green felt. This would be a welcome addition to any Winchester collection!
