Is there such an animal as a Winchester Commemorative for “Indian River County, Florida”?  A friend is trying to sell one for a friend of his.

I saw a few pictures of it and the engraving is enhanced by 24 K and it is in .45 Colt.  Asking price is $3500.  Never have seen one and never

heard of one before.  Is there such a beast and what would be a ballpark on the value?  Unfired and come with a wooden presentation box.

It is highly unlikely that Winchester manufactured it.  More than likely it was embellished after the fact.  There were/are several different entities that specialize it upgrading plain guns and selling them as “Limited Edition” pieces.

Thank you for the reply.  I am thinking it was made by one of those companies that you see advertising in the gun magazines.
