Full case of 10 Winchester rifles, circa 1903 vintage
Contains 10 half octagon, half magazine, .30 WCF Model 1894 Winchesters! Rarely seen, only a few original Winchester cases full of rifles are known, two 1895 carbine cases, a couple of 1894 carbines and this unique one. One end of the dovetailed box specifies the above configuration rifles and the other end of the box has a faded red “W”. I found this original case in the 1970’s and it took 20 years to get the rifles back in it which are no doubt not as close serially as was originally shipped. The serial numbers of these scarce rifles go from 157,293 to 646,704 (14 year span) as they are the best condition ones I could find. The condition varies from about 40% to about 95%, all are crescent butt as box would contain, there are no serial numbers listed on the box (I have another later 1943 vintage carbine box that has paper label listing original serial numbers shipped in box.) Glass top and coffee table bottom custom made for this ultimate of all gun room coffee tables, POR.
