I’m trying to establish the value on my 1894 32 WS Saddle Ring Carbine (SN 426070), and wondering if the ‘From W.F. Sheard Tacoma Wash’ stamped in the receiver adds or subtracts from base value?

The sight configuration from Sheard is very well done, with front sight being a Sheard folding twin bead, Marble rear folding bbl sight, and Lyman rear tang mounted folding peep sight. I understand that WF Sheard configured and then sold rifles/carbines purchased from Winchester but I’m curious what this receiver stamping actually does to collector values.

That is a tough question to answer, as the answer will be different based on who the buyer is.  In my area (I am less than 1-hour from Tacoma), there are many who would be willing to pay a slight premium for it.  However, a collector from the East coast is unlikely to pay any premium for it, and may want a slight price deduction… it all really comes down to “who” specifically is buying it.

You’ve validated my own opinion, Bert…I’ve held that any “extra” attraction is primarily geographically based…the stamping isn’t a distraction to me but the sight configuration is certainly an attraction!
