IMG_8301.JPGImage EnlargerIMG_8302.JPGImage EnlargerI am posting thes pics of a Madis letter that came with “The Winchester Book” that I bought from another member.  I am posting because of some interest from other members as to what was written in the Madis letter.

Yes interesting. He’s seen it before so this one must be original even if it isn’t in the record. That leaves the forgery door wide open.

Was forgery in 1978 as wide spread then and it is today? I know it was for Colts but Winchesters?

Would a man that handled more Winchesters than most alive today know what a forgery looks like?

Would a man who’s father was a career gun dealer and used to let his sons go shoot up loose boxes of 44 Henry cartridges “just for fun” know what a forgery is?

Would a man that knows how to engrave firearms be able to spot a fake engraving on a firearm?

Yes interesting indeed.

What is also interesting are things written today. Especially when a well know author, as he puts it, “I just write what I assume to be true facts. What difference does it make? All the old timers that would know the difference, They’re all dead anyway! Who’s going to question me!”

Enjoyed the letter, thanks for posting.
