This was a pleasant surprise; I bought a 11 gun collection, all to get 1 1894 in a configuration I didn’t have, including 3 1890’s a 1876 , ’73 , 86  and some other stuff. But this catalogue was in the mix and I’m pretty excited about finding it, I didn’t have a 1902 catalogue, how plentiful are they. I have just ordered the factory searches for the guns , I’m wondering if that is factory nickel on ser#328050, it would be nice if it was. I will post some more pics later, when I get these all catalogued etc.20230626_135801.jpgImage Enlarger20230626_135817.jpgImage Enlarger20230626_135825.jpgImage Enlarger

Man there is a lot of information in a 1902 catalogue, about cartridges, extras etc. Does any one know what the “A” means on the letter for the 1890 ser#328050.20230628_113652.jpgImage Enlarger

The “A” note in the ledger entry is because Winchester first began marking an “A” below the serial number on the receiver frames of the Model 1890 rifles in the year 1907.  At the same time, they began marking a “B” below the serial numbers on the Model 1906 rifles to ensure that they went to the correct assembly stations.
