I have a 1895 Winchester serial 1258, was applied 7/30/1896 and shipped 11/19/1996.  Recently I saw a letter for an 1895 serial number 12 received in warehouse on 07/31/1896. shipped 08/03/96, It shows to be made in 1895.  At what serial number did the production end in 1895 ??

I don’t know for sure but I believe that less than 60 guns were actually made in 1895?

Don’t bet on this.  This site and Rob and Brad’s book says 56.

I knew there weren’t many so I looked it up in the 95 book.
