Where does it say 1890?

Too bad it has a Model 1906 trigger guard and serial number. I don't suppose this rifle can be sold and shipped as an antique without a FFL either.
I would think if you're going to put together a parts gun you should at least know which parts are right.
It would have been worth finding a properly serial numbered Model 1890 trigger guard and hammer. Wonder what's the reserve. 🙄

It is indeed very odd that it has the late style (1906) upper tang marking on an alleged 1894 vintage Model 1890 ❗

Look at the difference on the upper flat just forward of the front sight in photo 7 compared to 2 and 17. Photo 7 looks as if there is a gouge of metal missing that is not shown in the other two.

Yes, the barrel end is quite mangled but doesn't appear too major in the top flat photo. Looks like it's right at the end?
Maybe it was used on a boat to dispatch sharks with a mouth shot? Or gators in Swamp People?
I'd bid on the parts if not a WRF barrel.
Pretty sure there's easily $500 in parts; especially if someone's looking for an early WRF barrel. Looks like a 3rd address which is correct for the s.n. range.
Overall, it's a qizzer.
He might want to use caution as to the buyer's State. A few would be potential trouble now-a-days.
