Description:

This Winchester Repeating Arms "W" cartridge board was manufactured around the 1890s and measures approximately 30 x 42 inches not counting the outer oak frame. The cartridges and components represented range from the tiny bb cap to the massive 4 gauge and total over 100 items not counting the individual caps. The most desirable cartridge on the board is the extremely rare 70-150 caliber that was intended for use in the Model 1887 shotgun, but never put into production. The main cartridge display forms a large "W" clearly signifying Winchester, and the background has attractive vignettes of a western hunter on the plains firing a Winchester while using his horse for cover and two hunters armed with Winchesters in a winter scene while the center has a brace of ducks suspended from the "H" trademark. The board has been installed in an outer non-factory replacement frame with an approximate total measurement: 40 x 53 1/4 inches.

Rating Definition:

Very good with a few scattered minor blemishes, some slight warping, and some scattered minor handling/storage marks on the frame. All the cartridges appear to be present.
