I know this was produced in 1894 – there’s even a date imprinted of August 20, 1894 – could be the patent date?

Approximately what is the rifle worth?  Moderate condition

Hello Herbert,

Unless the serial number is less than 1675, your Model 1894 was not manufactured in the year 1894.  The “August 21, 1894” date you see marked on your Winchester is the Patent date that was assigned to John M. Browning.

As for your question about the value, you did not provide the necessary details to even make a wild guess.  The precise configuration and caliber would be a place to start, or you could post several clear detailed pictures of the gun so that we can visually assess it.
