This book is an invaluable source of information for Winchester collectors. Current values from the Henry rifle to every model of Winchester and model variations from 1862 through 1963 are presented. Values in 6 grades of condition are recorded. This 3rd Edition has been expanded to include 1,316 Winchester models and their variations, 570 period correct photos, and 260 pages especially written for the Winchester collector. The book contains a serial number/date of manufacture list which utilizes the Winchester Polishing Room records from the Buffalo Bill Firearms Museum in Cody, Wyoming. The book is indexed for locating specific information. This 3rd Edition is a handsome book with strong binding, is significantly expanded over previous editions by 61 pages, utilizes sharp/clear photos, presents valuable collector information, and is only half the bulk of previous editions. Bert Hartman (member, Board of Directors, Winchester Arms Collectors Association, moderator for W.A.C.A. and Gun Broker "Ask the Experts") is the editor. The values are based on 47 years of gun show experience, consultation with respected experts and collectors, a survey of existing value publications, examination of auction house sales, and a personal hands-on survey of thousands of gun show offerings. The values in this text are the result of real sales to real people, not predicted values. Winchester values are presented in four major chapters: 1862 through 1898 (Antique), 1899 through 1918, 1919 through 1941, and 1942 through 1963. These time periods were selected because of important production and sales changes by Winchester. This book makes a comparison (with the results graphically illustrated and discussed) between investing in gold or in quality Winchesters. This book was written for the Winchester collector, to be used as a reference source in evaluating and improving their own collection, and by presenting the most accurate and informed reference text of current values.
