    From Winchester Museum to mine...gold ltd. 94 serial 000

    Winchester 1977 "Limited Edition I" model 94 (30-30) Factory archived Serial #000

    77L000_0.jpg


    Recently an interesting collection of Winchesters came to auction. Charles Crawford, the owner of CDNN Inc. (one of the largest wholesalers of guns) bought a rare collection of commemorative Winchester lever guns years ago directly from the Winchester archives for his personal collection.

    These included many rare limited commemorative with the special "0" serial number designation, not for public sale, but set aside and stored in the Winchester archives. Through his gun wholesaling connections Crawford purchased 43 of these unique rifles directly from Winchester and now one resides in my collection.



    See the attached letter from the president of Winchester.

    --Limited Edition to 1,500.

    --Comes with original box, wooden display case, factory paperwork including letter from Winchester president.

    --This is the one the factory pulled and gave the 000 prefix serial number and put it into the Winchester archives.

    ---Gold plated, engraved, superior quality wood.

    It was a truly rare opportunity and I was glad to grab this one for a few thousand below my mark. Other notable guns included an Eagle Scout .22 and the Wyoming Jubilee 94.

                Some of that engraving looks really really deep. Nice.

                    It’s ok. In other news, the grapes were probably sour. LOL

                    That’s a gorgeous piece. Very nice.
