Believe it or not! There are many yet to be discovered or recovered items that Winchester produced. This site is meant to be a educational source for that purpose. I will assist in identifing these ojects and purchasing if warrented. If you can't find it in a reference book, then let's talk, it might be the REAL THING!

I am seeking more information regarding the following items.

Please contact me if you have any information.

Metal Flanged Sign

This large, metal, flanged, two sided (mirrored image) sign is believed to be between 1910 and 1923 and used as an entrance advertising sign for large shooting galleries. I am interested in further determining the exact time frame and any other advertising, brochure, newspaper ads, etc... that show this item or complimentary pieces.

Triangular Hanger

This is a three-side cardboard hanger which fits together and is made to hang from the ceiling or from a fan-believed to be between 1907 and 1915. Other examples are known with different images. I am interested in further determining the exact time frame and any other advertising, brochure, newspaper ads, etc... that show this item or complimentary pieces.

Large Standup Cardboard

This large cardboard piece is believed to be between 1908 and 1912. I am interested in further determining the exact time frame and any other advertising, brochure, newspaper ads, etc... that show this item or complimentary pieces.

Bear Standup

This piece is the left wing of a three piece, large cardboard standup by Lynn B. Hunt. It is dated approximately 1915, and I am interested in obtaining this piece.

Cougar

This piece by Lynn B. Hunt is (ca.1910/1911). It has a complimentary side that features mallard ducks. I am interested in obtaining either of these pieces.

Missing Center Panel

This picture portrays the left and right wings of a three piece set. It shows two hunters in a duck boat, over decoys, and features what is believed to be a Model 1911 on the right side with a falling duck and a center fire rifle on the left with a Ram's head. At the bottom the text reads "SELF LOADING SHOTGUNS AND RIFLES".

I am looking for the center panel. The image of the center panel is poor because it is reprinted from "The Hardware Reporter, dated 12/01/1911".

"WINCHESTER-IDEAL"

This pictures a Winchester wooden box that was for "loaded" shells with "IDEAL" powder. This has always been interesting to collectors since "IDEAL" was a Peter Cartridge product. THe New Rival shell has a "Ideal" top wad and is even more interesting because it is for the rare "1" shot size.

A prominent Hardware and Sporting firm in Minneapolis, Minn. by the name of "JANNEY, SEMPLE, HILL & CO., located on South Second Street had this combination expressly loaded for them in the 1890's. I am looking for the addtional shells with this loading, but most of all for the 16g. wooden box and any 25 round box of JANNEY,SEMPLE,HILL (full or empty) with this loading. Let me know if you find it!(having trouble loading these pictures!)

"Winchester-NUBLACK invoice holder"

This old time "Bill or Invoice holder" is very unique. Although it shows some wear, the colors are bright and its the only one known. Dates (ca.1903), please advise if you find another one or something like it. Happy Hunting!(having trouble with loading these pictures-WORK IN PROGRESS!)
