I can’t comment on who the engraver was but that is a darned interesting auction – starting at a penny and with no reserve.  it will be interesting to watch.  Anyone care to estimate what the final bid price will be?

I am not of the opinion that John Ulrich engraved that Winchester. January/March 1877 was a bit too early for him to have been the engraver.

  I have a 66 rifle engraved and marked “J.ULRICH” behind the trigger, S/N 120XXX. R. L. Wilson’s book says he engraved the period 1869 to 1920.This gun is not marked and I don’t know who did it. The gun looks expense to me. I do not like nickle 66’s especially ones that are peeling like a snake. The gun has a period real look. T/R
