This would be fantastic if it was an 1866 only cat.  But I wonder why ’66s weren’t included along with the ’73s?  My ’74 repro contains only ’73s as well.  Looks like the company was trying to discourage sales of ’66s by pretending they were no longer available.

I have no idea but the Winchester 1873 catalog was dominated by the 1866 rifle. I have never seen an 1874 catalog and the Winchester 73 dominated the 1875 catalog.

I wouldn’t put much stock in the Julia Auction Description of the catalog. Half the time these auction listing writers don’t have a clue what they are talking about. The 66s were included in the 1875 catalog along with the 73, but not the 76 and later models (which is obvious why). 

If you have Armory Publications Winchester Catalog Set, the 1875 Catalog is included in that set. But there was a 1st and 2nd edition of the 1875 catalog. The later 2nd edition has the 1875 Reloading Tool in addition to the 1874 Reloading Tool in it. Which I believe is the Julia auction is the 2nd edition, but don’t know for certain. 

As far as I’m aware, there never was a 1874 Catalog.

Sincerely,

Maverick

Looked at my repro again & it is a ’75; guess I need to start buying those memory-enhancing drugs constantly advertised on TV.

A while back I posted a list of known catalogs compiled from Ron Stadt’s research and my own notes.

You can read the forum post discussing them here and the catalog list spreadsheet I made is posted.

No known 1874 Catalog. So if you find one its a new discovery. I suppose not impossible but most improbable. 

Sincerely,

Maverick
