VERY RARE METAL WINCHESTER SHOOTING GALLERY SIGN. Very early painted sheet steel sign that is 25-1/2″ long with a 90 degree bend at the back. It is 15-1/2″ high with a 2″ base. Front part of target is a 19-1/4″ diameter round section in the shape of a bull’s eye target. Background of the entire sign is black with red lettering and the large Winchester “W” trademark at the back side. The target is centered in the round section, black & white with a red border surmounted by “WINCHESTER” in red & yellow with somewhat smaller “AMMUNITION” around the bottom edge, also in red & yellow. Just below the target is a blue ribbon marked “SHOOTING GALLERY”. This is a dbl sided sign obviously intended for outdoor use, It was mounted with one side facing toward the sun and is heavily faded. The other side was apparently not exposed to direct sunlight. This exact sign is pictured on p. 62 of Winchester Rarities, Webster. CONDITION: Good. One side retains about 75% orig finish with some light surface rust and light to moderate fading; the other side is heavily faded with only traces of red & blue remaining and also has light surface rust. Regardless this is an extremely rare sign. 4-46822 JR366 (3,750-4,750)
