1866 Centennial Serial Number
August 22, 2022 - 4:36 pm

1sp_QuotePost

Trying to help an owner of his “1866 Centennial” 1894 determine the date of manufacture. Serial number is 82032 but serial numbers for post-1964 ’94s start at 2,700,000. Do Centennials have a different serial number scheme? Can’t find any info online.300620786_5432032596834983_4025544500296236659_n.jpgImage Enlarger

Ron,

All Winchester Model 94 commemorative editions had their own unique serial number range, most of them also had a prefix designation.  That stated, the Winchester Centennial ’66 (1966) and the Canadian Centennial (1967) did not have a prefix designation.

Winchester manufactured a total of 102,666 Winchester Centennial ’66 commemoratives in the year 1966.

I recently purchased a Centennial ’66 30-30 from my father in law. S/N 59265. How can I find out more information on this gun.

The Winchester Model 94 Centennial commemorative was the third issue in a very long string of Model 94 commemoratives.  They were manufactured for distribution and sale in the year 1966, with a total production on 102,309 (the second highest commemorative production total).  The issue price was $125, with current values in the $800 range if the gun is still NIB (New In Box) with all of the factory documentation it was issued with.  If the gun has been separated from its original box and documents, or it has been used (shot), the value drops to approximately $500.

This link on the WACA website contains an extensive list of the many different commemorative issues – Winchester Commemoratives | Winchester Collector
