I know nothing about it. Do you have any of the documentation it was issued with?

Anything to do with this????

European Issues 

Two very special commemoratives were made for sale in the European market. These were the “One of One Thousand” issues. Winchester saved all Model 94 receivers ending in three zeros for over ten years for this project. The first group of 250 were shipped to Italy in 1978 where they were fully engraved and inlaid in gold by B. C. Giovanelli. The guns were then fitted with exhibition grade french walnut and checkered at approximately 40 lines per inch. After final assembly, the guns were sold throughout Europe through specially chosen distributors. A second group of 250 were produced in similar fashion, and level of embellishment, in 1980. Very, very few of these guns have made it across the Atlantic to the U. S. and if available would be in excess of $10000 each.

Hi James  I recently sold a ’94 “1 of 1,000” European edition Ser# 4,705,000 I won,t disclose the price but it was in excess of $18,000.00. These are very well done, relief engraved and gold inlaid carbines. Done by cesar giovanelli in Italy. Just make sure everything is original, leather case, letter etc., and that the wood, especially the forearm, has not shrunk, as some had a habit of doing so. You have found a very special Winchester, congratulations. I believe there is only 3 or 4 of these made it back to North America, Iknow of 2 .     Henry
