Description:

Manufactured c. 1890. This Winchester Repeating Arms Co. advertisement retains its full compliment of cartridges and percussion cap tins from the minuscule b.b. cap to the monstrous 4 bore brass shot shell. Between the legs of the "W" are a winter hunting scene, two ducks hanging from the rear of an "H" headstamped casing, and a pioneer firing over his dead horse. The top of the board has "WINCHESTER" in orange letters with yellow outline and " REPEATING ARMS CO." beneath it. The bottom of the board reads " NEW HAVEN. CONN. U.S.A." The board measures 43 inches wide by 30 inches tall with a silver border and frame beyond that. Provenance: Firearms for Freedom Collection

Rating Definition:

Very good. The top left corner of the refinished frame is showing some separation that continues into the refinished silver border. The cartridges all show an attractive patina. The board has a few small spots of flaking, peeling on the left side, scattered scratches, and fading to the color. The perfect addition to any antique Winchester collection.
