Description:

These scarce items are typically what would have been used on the Winchester High Wall target rifles, as well as various lever actions. This set consists of a mid-range vernier rear sight that has a fixed base and is adjustable for elevation only. The side of the staff is graduated from "0-3" with 25 yard increments and is equipped with an eye-cup. This set also has an original Winchester wind gauge front sight that is laterally adjustable and equipped with a spirit level on the back side as well as a No. 17 Lyman globe sight (Winchester Series 67). There are five different inserts for the front sights. The complete sight set is stored in an original black/maroon leatherette Winchester case which is marked "WINCHESTER/VERNIER/AND/WIND GAUGE /SIGHTS." on the lid.

Rating Definition:

The sight pieces are all very fine to excellent with some scattered light speckling of brown patina. The case is fine with some mild handling/storage wear visible on the interior and exterior. Provenance: The Tom Selleck Collection
