(LAST UPDATED-(January 3, 2016)

Just completed posting ALL of my FULL SIZED Calendars that are for sale

Just completed listing my NON-WINCHESTER "THE WINCHESTER STORE" calendars. Not selling these yet, but had some requests to get the information "out there". Working on posting text and pictures for all the WINCHESTER "FACTORY" Store calendars-years 1921-1929!

-just revised all the prices on the remaining 5 panel sets. I have sold many these the last few weeks. Only (2 sets) remain on Ebay-see ebay seller name "nce1" or you can VIEW them under the tab-"5 PANEL SETS FOR SALE". In addition there are (7 sets) still in Wichita, hanging on my wall, in my private collection/mostly those featuring M-12's.

I have also listed the very, very RARE "WINCHESTER" Poster-titled "THE WOMAN STANDING with HAT and RIFLE" as shown on p.39/top right of the "RARITES" book. This AMERICAN version, shows the Woman standing and holding her cowbay hat in the RIGHT HAND and Winchester Model 1892 in her Left hand. Any Model 92 Winchester Advertising is scarce and this is most rare! Attributed the famous American artist Frank Tenny Johnson (who did only a very few other pieces for Winchester).

I have also listed the very rare BRONZE "WINCHESTER STORE" sign. (see 1926/27 Winchester STORE PRODUCT CATALOG on p.259.)

(note)-the LARGE DIECUT-Bistol FLY FISHING SCENE by Philip R.Goodwin-ca.1912 has just SOLD!

MARCH 4, 2015)-Just listed a very RARE "THE WINCHESTER STORE" Golf DISPLAY/MERCHANDISING FLOOR STAND-(perhaps only one known to exist). THis is the only one I have ever seen (heard rumors that perhaps another exisits, but never saw it, don't know who might have it (after 35 years of collecting), so maybe it really isn't out there (just full DISCLOSURE)! The pictures and text can be seen under the listings of WINCHESTER 5-panel sets. Scoll down that section-to where the SPORTS stuff is listed and then to the "WINCHESTER GOLF" SECTION. I have told you all I know about, but some information I am sure is still "out there", so if anyone can add to the story, please call or email me!

Also just listed a extremely rare "THE WINCHESTER STORE" brass plague-see futher description and text under the TAB-"Winchester ADVERTISING-for sale". Just go down this page a short ways and you will see it!

Just finished updating all the recent SALES, all listings should be current and accurate. About 2/3rds. of the WINCHESTER 5-panel SETS have been sold! All the panel sets are also listed on EBAY under the EBAY SELLER name "nce1"-his name is John Woodworth.

(p.s.) I have a frustrating formatting (HTML) software coding problem on the PHILIP R. GOODWIN page. Can't seem to find the problem in the HTML code. It's more difficult to read the information but IT IS ACCURATE and CURRENT! Please bear with me as I am working on a fix. Please call or email and I'll see if I can help you with this page!

We have completed the move into our new house in Wichita, Ks!! Have new (Wichita, Kansas) email address and new HOME telephone number- tim@thewinchesterstore.com and (316.634.1877).

I have been listing (FOR SALE) my entire collection of P.R.Goodwin Original Sketches, bronzes, and pencil/charcoal drawing. Some very rare and collectible items! See the tab "PHILIP R. GOOWIN"-items for Sale!

I am selling ALL my Winchester 5-panel sets of advertising (Large CARDBOARD Displays). These were used primarily in the Front Windows of the "WINCHESTER STORE". I have 97% of all the sets shown in the WINCHESTER "RARITIES" book, in fact most of those in the book are the very ones I am selling! I also have about (11) sets of panels, including some SINGLES PANELS that were not in the book.

If you have any questions or comments please call or email me.

I have sold my entire WINCHESTER Gun Collection! I am now concentrating on COLLECTING/BUYING only those WINCHESTER models (Rifle or Shotgun) with "STAINLESS STEEL" barrels, and other models as listed below

1-SEEKING TO BUY-any Winchester Gun (Shotgun or Rifle) with a "STAINLESS STEEL" barrel!

2-SEEKING TO BUY-good condition M-42's-(especially 2 1/2 inch chamber, SKEET GRADE/checkered and any SOLID RIB MODELS!). Also seeking CYCINDER, Imp.Cyl., No.1 SKEET (WS-1) and No.2 SKEET (WS-2) Choked models!)

"PHILIP R. GOODWIN"-(all Philip R. Goodwin are listed under a seperate tab titled "PHILIP R. GOODWIN-items For Sale!)"

-Also listing for sale, a very large supply of old Auction catalogs from Bob Strauss, Dixie/SOLDUSA, Wards, Langs etc. Also a very complete collection of WCA and WACA magazines, some of which are the oldest printed and in very limited supply. Also see a listing of Hunting and Collectibles magazines that are for sale!

I have sold 95% of my Winchester Gun Collection and now am concentrating only on Model-42's and Model-12's and Winchester with "STAINLESS STEEL" barrels. Please call or email with any for sale or trade!

I am also buying any shotshell box that says or has any designation of a "HARDWARE STORE". These may vary from just a few boxes made up privately by a Store or they might be the more traditional ones produced by a MAJOR CARTRIDGE firm like "WINCHESTER" or "PETERS". The Boxes will likely carry the name of the HARDWARE STORE, but all the loading will be done by the cartridge firm. There is ususally a notation on the box, stating who loaded the HULLS/shells. These are listed in full detail under the "Tim's WANT LIST" section of this website.

As always, I will buy direct from you or pay (up to a 10% FINDER'S FEE) and take all the risk myself. I can't possibly be at all the local Auctions, flea markets and estate/tag sales where this stuff still frequently shows up. I wish you good luck, hope you find some good items and call me. I will buy on the first call, given a good description and price!

If you find some pictures that do not load, or any broken links or other mistakes, I can and will fix them, if you would notify me!

(a personal target to publish a-"DECIATED book on just "WINCHESTER STORE" material!)

Over the last several years I have contributed to several books and articles on "Winchester" non-gun items, particularly in regards to ShotShell Boxes, Tools, Advertising and other pieces from the pre-war era. I am now preparing a book of my own on the WINCHESTER HARDWARE ERA, generally from 1918 to 1932. This endeavor will be concentrating on the "THE WINCHESTER STORES" and will detail some of the information about how long each store item was produced, rare pictures and documentation. There are enough books on WINCHESTER for now, so I intend to gather material and refine the document over the next several years and then publish a quality piece! This work should be interesting and informative to all "Winchester" collectors, and I am actively seeking your help and assitance in locating, (and purchasing if required) those pieces that will make this book unique! Particularly interested in any and all advertising (of any type) and all papers, files etc. that concern this period and WRACo's (Winchester Repeating Arms Co.) relationships with its vendors, suppliers, stores, supply houses, etc.

A very RARE and Important "WINCHESTER STORE" Bronze WINDOW SIGN. This was advertised to each WINCHESTER STORE as sign for their WINDOW or as a SHOW CASE or other INTERIOR DISPLAY. I believe this was from a WINCHESTER STORE in Pennsylvania, I have no other material from that store in my collection.

A quote from the WINCHESTER STORE CATALOG (1926/27-page 259). "MADE of solid monumental BRONZE with HIGH POLISHED border and letters. Your STORE name is made in LARGE LETTERS across the top of the sign in DIGNIFIED RUNTIC TYPE. (THE WINCHESTER STORE) is in smaller letter type beneath. SIZE of this #1446 sign is 2 3/4 inch HIGH x 19 3/4 inch LONG. The price for one was $13.90". This SIGN is in total ORIGINAL CONDITION with NO RESTORATION OF ANY KIND. You can see the FULL RED colors in the WINCHESTER NAME. I have shown the back side which has the the following letters deeply embeded in the BRONZE. "HIGHTON BRONZE-THE AOCOINE etc...... (I am not furnishing the remainder of this script to prevent anyone from making REPRODUCTIONS!

This was quite expensive (for its era) and I believe only a very few were even ordered. I have only seen less than a handfull in all my years of collecting and chasing these WINCHESTER STORE items, especially their STORE advertising! Some of them may have been the victim of WORLD WAR Scrap Drives, leaving even fewer to ulitmately surive. One of my TOP TEN PIECES from a Lifetime collection!

factory issued-"WINCHESTER STORE CALENDARS"

These calendars were issued by WRACo.-(actually order forms were sent to each store and and there was a charge/by volume. The MAIN cover scene is the same for each order/year but the individual STORE name and address is personalised. Makes them quite the Favorite and very collectible!

Only two complete sets (one of each year-1921/1929 are currently known to exist and I am considering selling my complete set in the next two years. Many ALMOST COMPLETE sets are "out there" but getting that last one or two calendars is a real challenge! I will only sell as a complete UNIT and it will take some time to get this all set up and posted. I am feeling the years and posting the TEXT and PICTURES is not the FUN part of collecting. Stay in touch and I will get this completed in time!

NON-FACTORY issued-"WINCHESTER STORE CALENDARS"

These calendars were purchased by individual WINCHESTER STORE from "outside vendors". The various store that chose to buy this type/style of Calendar did not use the WRACo. version for that year. Perhaps cost was a issue, but most likely the store chose this style because it allowed them to create a more localized "feel" which they wanted to establish with their customer base. The stores in big cities usually chose a more retail domestic scene, those in the rural areas a arigcultural/farm scene and others something of a Hunting/Wildlife scene.

They also used these calendars to list their primary (and secondary) lines of retail GOODS. I have seen many for various brands of appliances, furniture, Horse related Equipment and a couple-(believe it or not for UNDERTAKING/MORTUARY SERVICES AND SUPPLIES!)

A couple of examples of these types of Calendars can be seen in the WINCHESTER RARITIES book, pages 30, 32, 33, 34, 36 and 37.

I started to collect these NON-WRACo. "issued" calendars because they were different and they had a "certain appeal" to them. Gradually over the years I have sold almost all of these except the ones that feature "WOMEN-BABIES". They are quite RARE and since Lois likes them they have expanded to the main living room and bathrooms! The situation is same as when dealing with the full sized Winchester Calendars and Posters. Anything with "Women" in their theme is both RARE and SCARCE, making them very desiable collectibles. The posting of the TEXT and PICTURES is not the FUN part of collecting. SO Stay in touch and I will get this completed in time!

a 1922 Non-WRACo. issued WINCHESTER STORE calendar for H.D.Powers, Grand Rapids, Minn. This is doubly rare as it is one of only two DIFFERENT calendars that feature the famous"Doe-wah-Jack" (Indian) and the WINCHESTER STORE BRAND. The scene shows NATIVE INDIAN, in his full dress, using a hand made BIRCHBARK bugle to call a distant MASSIVE MOOSE who is standing in the water. The Hunter is partially hidden in the blind and it shows his BIRCHBARK canoe beside him. THe correct copyright (1920) is in the lowest left hand corner and reads for THE DECKWITH Co.-DOWAGIAC, Mich. It also has the correct 1915 copyright in the upper Right Hand corner for ROUND OAK. Has the correct TWO HANGING HOLES with the its red cord at the top. It advertises the famous "ROUND OAK STOVES and RANGES and MOISTAIR and PIPELESS HEATING SYSTEMS". The brown date pad has the month of AUGUST and the remaing months for the year 1922. This calendar is mint with the exception of some small rust spots just above the pad and on the stapes themselves.

At the very bottom is carries this line-"THE ROUND OAK PIPELESS FURANCE IS THE BEST PIPELESS FURNANCE ON THE MARKET". The size=23 inches High X 12 1/2 inches Wide in my custom wood frame. This is a more rarely used scene than the one for the year 1925 and is without ANY RESTORATION of ANY KIND! Again most usual and a double collectible WINCHESTER STORE/DOE WAG JACK. THis is very hard to find in (ANY) condition-a great piece.

a 1922 Non-WRACo. issued WINCHESTER STORE calendar for "The Jackson Hardware Co., Durango, Colo." THIS IS NOT your usual style of a MERCHANDIZING calendar. It is only the DECEMBER PAGE and it is printed on 2 sided heavy cardboard stock. This would have been purchased by this store from travelling calendar/print salesman from his catalog. There is a form Number at the bottom (FIMM3072) and a copyright date of 1920 and I believe is from BROWN AND BIGALOW, St. Paul.

The front side shows a full COLOR picture of a young INDIAN maiden in her best dress outfit, including mocossains and leggings. She appearently is waving good buy to some one (off screen), as she prepares to get into his NATIVE BIRCHBARK CANOE! It is Titled "WEEKO-the PRETTY GIRL."

The REVERSE/BACK side shows a list of "USEFUL GIFTS that "this WINCHESTER STORE is ususually WELL PREPARED to offer"! This list for MOTHER includes Electric TOASTER, WAFFLE IRON and PERCULATOR. (for FATHER) a Winchester Rifle or Shotgun, Flashlight, Camp Axe and other tools including a very rarly offered PAIR of SHOW SHOES or SKIES! (for the SON and DAUGHTER), a Winchester .22 RIFLE or .410 shotgun, DISC WHEEL COASTER WAGON, Daisy AIR Rifle, FLexible RUNNER SLED and ERECTOR SETS, TOY BANKS and ELECTRIC TRAINS! This is not a complete listing but you can see this is a well equipped HARDWARE STORE for RURAL COLORADO.

I have never seen any of the other months for this calendar, it must have been a fairly expensive for the store to use as a give-a-way to its customers. The size in my custom frame=7 1/2 inches wide X 12 3/4 inches tall. I can see a partial signature on the price but it is too faint to see the entire signature. Note there is a similar version of a 1923 calendar listed below.

This is totally MINT and has no restoration of ANY KIND!

I can't seem to POST any of the three pictures, still working on the problem. I know I can send pictures direct to you, so call or email me!

a 1923 Non-WRACo. issued WINCHESTER STORE calendar for "SHANKLIN HARDWARE Co.-63 East Clinton St., Frankfort, Ind."-(note the 3 digit telephone number). Shows a CLASSIC portrait of a HANDSOME MOTHER and her young daughter, dressed in their best white outfit-(the print is in in full color)! The Title of this piece is "SUNSHINE". THis store has "EVERYTHING IN HARDWARE" and features Stewart Stoves and Ranges. Note they are selling their line of "Stewart Stoves".

Has the Complete pad and cover, with NO RESTORATION of ANY KIND!. Size is 18 inches High X 10 1/2 inches wide in my custom frame. If I ever took this out from under the glass, I would probably very lightly clean the overall piece with a NEW unused cloth rag and clean, distilled water to remove some of the fine dirt that I didn't remove the first time (I just missed doing this, my bad!) A great piece-A sentimental favorite! Still posting new and better PICTURES!

a 1923 Non-WRACo. issued WINCHESTER STORE calendar for "The Jackson Hardware Co., Durango, Colo." Like the silimar 1922 calendar (from the same store, which is listed above), this is a Calendar where each page is printed seperately and on heavy cardboard stock! This is the MARCH page only and it has a form number at the very bottom (form FIMM3063) and a 1920 copyright date, which is believe is for BROWN and BIGLOW, St. Paul.

It Features a beautiful sitting young INDIAN MAIDEN with a BRIGHT RED FEATHER in her HEAD BAND. It is TITLED "Tacinca-the LITTLE FAWN". A beautiful picture and though she must be INDIAN, but her features are very AMERICANIZED!

This is very rare, as it is double sided and each cardboard pad/page is a single MONTH-in this case for MARCH only!. It is framed so the you can turn it over and see the REVERSE side. On this side it tells the story of how important certain FARMING mplements are to the ECONOMY! It then lists JOHN DEERE No.40 Tractor PLows, other two-way plows and GRAIN DRILLS. It is the smallest size calendar I ever had in the collection, quite unique and HAS NO RESTORATION of ANY KIND-it is MINT in every way!. It is the same size as the 1922 calendar listed above=7 1/2 WIDE x 12 34/ inches TALL in my identical CUSTOM FRAME. THis is very hard to find in this condition-a great piece and most unusual!

I am having problems getting my three different photos to POST. These are the same images. Call or email me and I know I can send some direct to you!

a 1924 Non-WRACo. issued WINCHESTER STORE calendar for the "BASSETT Hardware and Supply Co., Bassett, Nebraska". Interestly this store sells-HARDWARE-FURNITURE-IMPLEMENTS and UNDERTAKING SUPPLIES-(litereally from soup to Nuts!) This unusual calendar has no picture of a Women but instead a great OCEAN scene-(in Neb.?)-of the SURF pounding the Shore, the Rocks, against a stormly sky and some great looking Hardy trees that have survived this enviorment! The title is "MOONLIGHT-MONTEREY" and the print is tipped on to its background frame! It is signed "N.Hagerup?", I haven't done any reasearch on this auther, but the painting itself is very well done!

Comes with a complete pad and no restoration of ANY KIND! Has just the smallest of tiny flecks on the bottom of the print and some light brown smears in the BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER of the framing material, nothing in the picture itself! Has the ORIGINAL WHITE CORD at the top! A most curious piece and very well done, I liked it immediately!

a 1925 Non-WRACo. issued WINCHESTER STORE calendar for the "H.D.Powers Store in Grand Rapids, Minn". This is similar to the one listed above for the year 1922 it features the famous "Doe-wah-Jack" Indian offering a Native hand made items for trade to his neighbor at her CABIN DOOR. It carries the title "Brings a message of GOOD CHEER". This is very colorfull piece with very bright patterns and symbols (and many of them throught out the entire page!) NOTE-his left arm band shows "ROUND OAK" which is IOWA companies advertising for their MAIN line of STOVES-RANGES-HEATING SYSTEMS. This scene has it all, including the company logo-"THE ROUND OAK FOLKS MAKE GOOD GOODS ONLY"

This Calendar is Mint, the color are perfect, including the chicken, the flower and the INDIAN dress. It has the full ORIGINAL cover (for the monthly pages), which itself has a scene depicting young Indian children playing at a stream with their TEPEES in the background. The Original staples are intact and has a some rust, but that is the only thing that is less than STONE MINT in this calendar which has NO RESTORATION of ANY KIND! Size =23 1/2 inches High X 13 inches Wide in my custom wood frame. Has the correct COPYRIGHT DATE "1923" in the lower right corner, for the "Deckwith Co.-Dowagiac, Mich". Note at the very top, the ORIGINAL red cord is bright and intact!

Again a most RARE calendar, and a identical one is shown in the Winchester RARITIES book on page 35. Very few of these are known to exist, perhaps a dozen! THis is very hard to find in this condition-a great double collectibe-WINCHESTER STORE/and ROUND OAK/Doe wah jack.

a 1926 Non-WRACo. issued WINCHESTER STORE calendar for the "THELEN HARDWARE Co., Shelby, Nebraska"-(note the 2 digit telephone number!) This is my personal favorite (after the 1928 Maxwell Parish). Shows gorgeous scene of New MOTHER in her robe and lovingly holding her Infant child. Has just a great and very appropiate title "LOVE'S PRECIOUS GIFT"/Kenyon-perhaps the artist? THIS large print is in FULL color and I think commands attention on any wall or space where it is displayed. Has complete pad and cover. The cover has a IMPRESSED statment-"LIFE GREATEST GIFT-a YEAR OF TIME"/I don't think I have this seen this option more than once before. In two locations this store lists "THE COPPER-CLAD, The world's greatest Range". There is NO RESTORTATION of ANY KIND!

THis is a very scarce piece and in great condition. THis is fairly common for a piece of this age-a spot of rust on the staples and some small spots on the cover and at the top. I don't believe this was ever used/hung on a wall-The two holes at the very top are MINT and so is the GOLD CORD! THis calendar has a slightly LARGER SIZE=21 inches High X 14 inches wide in my custom frame.

I now notice that MY reflection shows up in some of the photo's, as well as the camera FLASH! Call or email me and I can get some better pictures to you!

In the distant background a IH tractor (perhaps Iron Wheel?) is pulling a HAY RAKE. A picturesque farm, complete with RED ROOF BUILDINGS and old fashioned hand built ROCK FENCE.

The size is 15 1/2 inches wide X 27 inches High in my custom frame! The COLORS are MINT and this Calendar has NO RESTORATION of any KIND! Has some very small spots below the picture and at the top metal band. A great piece and a favorite of mine!

a 1927 Non-WRACo.issued WINCHESTER STORE calendar for "W.W.SHAHAN-HARDWARE-Harness-Furniture-Implements, Bird City, Kans." I was attacted to this for several reasons. I am Kansas native, born and educated and Bird city is always on the NEWS, because it is in the extreme NW corner of the state and it always is one of the first cites that is covered over by our famous early WINTER Snowstorms. This is also one of the most UNUSUAL Winchester Store calendars that I ever encounted. The ENTIRE calendar is very carefully make of BAMBOO Slats and features a Korean or peraps Chinese scene of their traditional fishing boats on a large lake or perhaps the Ocean. It is very well done, but why this for a STORE that sells HARNESS , FURNITURE and IMPLEMENTS in barren N.W. KANSAS?

Has the complete pad with its 1927 cover and has NO RESTORATION of ANY KIND!. Size is 22 inches High X 16 inches wide, in my custom wood frame. AGAIN most unusual and STONT MINT, never used or displayes!

Sorry, the first photo is upside down! I'll fix it if I can, if not call or email for more photo's!

a 1928 Non-WRACo.issued WINCHESTER STORE calendar for the "JACKSON HARDWARE CO., Durango, Colorado." I actually have 3 seperate calendars for three (3) different years for this store! It is my personal FAVORITE CALENDAR (of all types) AND PERHAPS the most collectible of all! It features a nicely illustrated scene by the famous artist "MAXWELL PARRISH", one of his BEST NUDES! Under the print itself in small gold letters is th title "THE ENCANTRESS". The colors are absolutely BRIGHT and MINT. I have only seen three different MAXWELL PARRISH images-(that were used in WINCHESTERSTORE calendars). All of them are different and for Different Years-see one of them in Tommy's collection, RARITIES page. 33).

I was only successful in winning the bid on one of these-(the competition was very intense!) and this was in the very early days on Ebay (ca.1997). THe MINT CALENDAR has its complete pad (marked 1928 on the front) and there is NO RESTORATION of ANY KIND anywhere on this very, very RARE PIECE!. This is the ORIGINAL Gold Relief FRAME (as I bought it, and it is triple matted). I always left this calendar in its original frame (even with the CHIP at the upper right hand corner, believing that this is the way if was FRAMED by the DURANGO STORE in 1928! THis is almost impossible to find in this condition-a great piece. Note-that is my flash showing in the pictures, but all the gold leaf writing (at the bottom) is fully intact. Has a small tear at the top of the outer edge (left side) but I didn't repair, thinking it better to just leave it in the Original condition that I found it many years ago. A very nice, small size that is easily displayed on any Shelf or wall. Size = 18 1/2 inches high X 10 1/2 inches wide!

I did get all the pictures to POST, but several are NOT TURNED RIGHT! I can't seem to get those fixed, but they do show how attractive the piece really is! Call or email me and I can get you some more pictures!

SOMETHING VERY DIFFERENT AND UNIQUE! a ca.1927 Non-WRACo. issued WINCHESTER STORE (small oval METAL FRAME) for "A.J. Capen and Sons-HAREWARE, Perry, Iowa"-(note the 3 digit telephone number). NOT A CALENDAR, but something much more rare! I had 3 of these and this is the last of them. Shows a cute young girl in her outdoor WINTER Wear. This Christmas item has the following poem-"Its the Song-Ye Sing-and the Smile-Ye Wear-That's Amaking-The Sun Shine-Everywhere." ...Relllep (I don't know anything about this poet). On the back in pencil the following is written "SKI LODGE on the top of old Baldy"-I have no idea what this means, perhaps added by the original holder of this cute piece.

As you can imagine, this displays nicely in many different venues, size= 9 inches High X 5 inches wide. There are specks underneath the glass, that I did not attempt to remove. I wish I had more of these, but I got all them from one source, a picker in the Iowa/ Minn. area. Perhaps those were the only places these were used by those small rural Winchester Stores.

"The WINCHESTER STORE" 5-panel sets (for sale!)

(October 11, 2011)-I have decided to sell my complete LIFETIME (35 years) collection of WINCHESTER STORE 5-panel sets! This includes all my complete sets, partial sets, single panels and all WOODEN DISPLAY FRAMES! You can see most of these in the Winchester "RARITIES" book, I have about 97% of all those in the book, plus about (13) additional sets that are unpublished! Most are in MINT CONDITION with great colors and some are very rare, considering how fragile they are. Even with carefully handling they get the edges tattered and ripped and then destroyed! That's why those you see at the GUN SHOWS, FLEA MARKETS, etc. are always beat up, taped or almost never with all 5 panels together!

I have listed the Winchester Store 5-panel sets and any items that are for sale in the following order.

1920-(Winchester 5-panel sets started March, 4, 1920-all were one-sided, until Sept.1920!

1923-(this year only, most 5-panels displayed a "Giant" center piece, that covers the center 3 panels!

1924-Only a very few new sets were produced!

1925-no known 5-panels set produced this year!

1926-5-panels set now produced only on a monthly basis!

1927-no known 5-panel sets produced this year!

1928-all 5-panel sets now have a CARTOON theme!

1929-WRACo. and "THE WINCHESTER STORES" stopped 5-panel sets in April, 1929!

UNPUBLISHED "WINCHESTER STORE-5-PANEL SETS"-(for sale!)

I ORIGINALLY had for sale (11)-Eleven, 5-panel WINCHESTER STORE sets (or partial sets) that are not shown in the Winchester "RARITIES" book. ONLY (2)TWO sets REMAIN unsold! When working with Tommy and the Krause Co. editor, it was a joint agreement not to publish any 5-panel set if between us we only had a partial/incomplete set-(less than 5 panels). It also got to be a limiting factor in the absolute number of pages that we had to work with! ANYWAY, I now have these complete sets and some SINGLE PANELS that are unpublished!. These DO NOT appear in any other SPORTING COLLECTIBLES BOOK!

(Christmas-1922)-Another unpublished Winchester 5-panel set that (this is complete). This is NOT in the Winchester "RARIIES" book, I purchased this just after the book went to Press.

(side-#1)-Titled "CHRISTMAS DISPLAY"- shows a GIANT (3) center panel scene of a BIG RED SANTA and bag over-filled with Winchester gifts. It is indeed the most charming and sentimental of all the Winchester (5) panels and is a top "10" for sure. In the bag I see a very rare SCOOTER, M-90, Hockey Stick, Pocket Knife, Boxing Gloves, Plane, Basketball, two GOLD Scissors, full box of bits, a razor strop and a rare KITCHEN KNIVE SET.The only problem is this is so rare that only a few of the really dedicated Winchester advertising collectors know of its existence. The end panels are sometimes seen, they each show a long list of WINCHESTER STORE gift ideas, including some WJRC (Wincheser Junior Rifle Corp) items. I have only seen two complete sets of these and bought the only one I ever had a chance to purchase (it was from a private buyer and took 8 years to do the "DEAL".

(Side-#2)-Titled "ICE SKATE DISPLAY-shows a neat Winchester ICE SKATES on each panel, In MINTY condition. I am selling all my 5-panels, so here goes a rare one, that is not published in any SPORTING COLLECTIBLE book. Very, Very rare! I just noticed that several pictues are missing, I am attempting to replace them!

(July 13-19, 1922)- a very rare Winchester 5-panel set-(complete). Yes, this is the one from the Winchester "RARITIES" book-pp.129. Tommy didn't even have this set, its rarely found intact with all 5 panels!

(Side-#1) Titled "RIFLES and AMMUNITION"-The center three individual panels feature a .401 Auto-loading RIFLE, a Model-95 and the best of all, a very desirable panel showing the "MODEL-94". Each end panel shows METALLIC AMMUNITION for these RIFLES and what is really rare (Ammunition for the Winchester Model-86). THIS IS THE ONLY 5-PANEL SET THAT FEATURES ANYTHING ABOUT THE WINCHESTER MODEL-86)!

(Panel#1-"For Self Loading RIfles-.22 automatic, .351 S.L., .401 S.L.-"FOR MODEL-95 Rifle"-.30 ARMY, .30 Gov't'06, .38 W.C.F., .405 W.C.F."). Note-this is one of the very FEW 5-panels sets made exclusively for "BIG GAME", it mentions DEER, MOOSE and BEAR!

(Panel#5-"for MODELS 94, 92 and 86-.32-40, .38-55, .45-70 and .25-35, .30-30, .32 W.S.-.33 W.C.F.)

Again, each panel (on both sides) has the red "WINCHESTER" in STAGGERED SCRIPT LETTERS, making each panel a Prime canidate for use in different Winchester collections.

(Side-#2)-is interesting in that it features 5 different Winchester FLASHLIGHTS or BATTERIES, including a GIANT Picture of a 1923 SPOT-LIGHT model with a CURVED LENS and another with a cutaway Winchester BATTERY.

(September 7-13, 1922)-a another of the very good complete WINCHESTER STORE 5-panel sets. I am selling the actual 5-panel set used in the Winchester "RARITES" book-pp.130

(side-#1)-Titled " SPORTS EQUIPMENT" that shows a large WINCHESTER FOOTBALL (on the center panel). The other panel shows WINCHESTER FOOTBALL Suppplies-(a Winchester FOOTBALL, Winchester FOOTBALL HELMET and a Wincheter FOOTBALL SHOULDERS PADs. The panel on BASKETBALL SUPPLIES, shows a BASKETBALL, BASKETBALL SHORTS and KNEE BRACE. Each of these panels has a very prominate "WINCHESTER" in red staggered script Letters at the top. Since this side can't be shown readily, I have furnished some pictures from the "RARITIES" book that give you a idea of that side. This is the set used for the "RARITIES" book, so you are looking at the real "thing"!

(side-#2)-Titled "SHOTGUNS and SHELLS"-this side is just as desirable if not more so, since it also has individual Panels, (again with the red "STAGGERED SCRIPT LETTERS" and (2) of the most popular Winchester SHOTGUNS ever produced-(a Model 12, a Model 97, and the only cutaway panel of a Model 12 that was ever used on a 5 panel set. In addition the both end panels have neat pictures of Winchester "REPEATER" brand SHOTSHELLS. (NOTE)-this is a NICKLE STEEL Model 1912, and before 28 gauge was introduced! If you look hard you might find a individual panel of the guns, and even rarer you might find the center 3 panels, but to find a complete 5 panel set is truly rare, and they just don't come up for sale, the collectors keep them.

THis is another of my best conditioned 5-panel sets, its MINT on both sides, No restoration, just truly great piece. I currently have it mounted on White acid-free foam board with the GUN side facing out. I have pictures of the other side, it is MINT ALSO, but will ship it either on the foam board or just the panels themselves, your choice!

This MAGAZINE AD is better than most, it is from the Literary Digest-December 11, 1920. A very early ad for both the WJRC kit and Winchester JUNIOR TRAPSHOOTING KIT. Not normally featured together this CHRISTMAS ad has a great picture of the full contents of both kits and uses a WJRC picture of boys shooting on a INDOOR range (same scene as used on the 5 panel set). This is a very early ad, at the start of the campaign to sell these products-note the text DOES NOT REFER TO WINCHESTER STORES (yet). The ad itself is in MINT condition, mounted on white acid-free foam board and srink wrapped. A significant REFERENCE PIECE!$30

Again there is no mention (yet) of going to a WINCHESTER STORE to buy this outfit. Its a very early ad and quite different.$25

(ttc)

The final MAGAZINE AD in this series of (3) is also from the Literary Digest of May 29, 1920. It shows a nice ad of two young men throwing/shooting with a full WINCHESTER JUNIOR TRAPSHOOTING KIT laying in the background. It also features a big display of the Model 20 itself, the clay targets and the .410 shells. Still no mention of going to a WINCHESTER STORE to buy the KIT. Interestingly it refers to the kit by the initals "W.J.T."-I don't remember seeing that used before (of after for that matter).$25

"Winchester Store-JUNIOR TRAPSHOOTING KIT"-5-panel sets" (for sale!)-only 2 versions ever made (1920 only!)-very rare!

-(May 27-June 2, 1920)-Titled "JUNIOR TRAP SHOOTING OUTFIT". This is a complete WINCHESTER STORE 5-panel set. It is the one shown in the Winchester "RARITIES" book on p.98. IF you look closely in the book, you can see that I sent these photo's in to the editor. This the same 5-panel shown in both of RON STADT's books. Book#1-"Winchester SHOTGUNS and SHOTSHELLS", Ronald W. Stadt, 1984-Armory Publications: Tacoma, page 83. The second book "Winchester SHOTGUNS and SHOTSHELLS", Ronald W.Stadt, 1995-Krause Publications, Iola, WI.-page 148. It is in the same black wood frame (and under glass) from when Ron had it. It is the only one I have ever seen-extremely rare!

When I sell my WINCHESTER JUNIOR TRAPSHOOTING KIT, I will also sell this 5-panel set. It is the only one known, its MINT, unrestored, no flaws of any kind, the colors are OUTSTANDING! It has been behind glass for 25+ years. It is the first year (1920), so it is 1-sided and the only 5-panel dedicated solely to the Winchester TRAPSHOOTING KIT (Outfit). It is extremely rare, because there were not many WINCHESTER STORES in May, 1920 (maybe 7/10 stores total). So the "pool" of these that were ever produced was very small and then the survival rate must have been very high! in fact it is the 12 th, or 13 th. panel set that the Winchester SALES SERVICE department had ever sent! I have a signed and dated letter from Ron for provenance. In fact I bought this from Ron many years ago. Its the very best you can get in this collectible! IT RARE! ITS STONE MINT! and HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE! I have had a most complete collection of WINCHESTER STORE 5-panel sets and this is the single most RARE and at the same time BEST CONDITIONED one of the ALL!

(June 24 to 30, 1920)-Titled "JUNIOR TRAP SHOOTING OUTFIT, WOMAN on WALL". I am selling this very scarce WINCHESTER STORE 5-panel. Yes, it is the one used in the publication of the book Winchester "RARITIES" pp.100.

There are only (3) Winchester Store 5-panel sets that show the JUNIOR TRAPSHOOTING KIT, including a Winchester Model-20 shotgun. The father is proudly watching his son shoot the .22 RIFLE while he is Target Shooting with a lever action rifle (M-1886 or M-92/94-can't tell for sure) and the son has nice .22 rifle (perhaps a (Model 1890)?. A really great scene and they worked Mother into the act, she is watching her Boys proudly for the porch railing. Again this is MINTY, and has no restoration of any kind, no tears, no tape, no nothing. A great set that features several Winchester Guns and very, very scarce!

(early 1920-so only one sided!)-displays the Father cleaning his Winchester Model-12 and his son his Winchester .22 (looks to be a Model 1890). You can clearly see a green Winchester GUN OIL CAN, a green labeled glass bottle of Winchester Crystal Cleaner and a green tube of Winchester GREASE. What more can you get into a scene! It is MINT, no restoration of any kind, no tears, no fading, no tape. One of the very best 5-panels and very, very rare!

"Winchester Store-FOOTBALL and FOOTBALL Equipment (5-panel sets"-for sale!)

(September 7-13, 1922)-a another of the very good complete WINCHESTER STORE 5-panel sets. I am selling the actual 5-panel set used in the Winchester "RARITES" book-pp.130

(side-#1)-Titled " SPORTS EQUIPMENT" that shows a large WINCHESTER FOOTBALL (on the center panel). The other panel shows WINCHESTER FOOTBALL Suppplies-(a Winchester FOOTBALL, Winchester FOOTBALL HELMET and a Winchester FOOTBALL SHOULDERS PADs. The panel on BASKETBALL SUPPLIES, shows a BASKETBALL, BASKETBALL SHORTS and KNEE BRACE. Each of these panels has a very prominate "WINCHESTER" in red staggered script Letters at the top. Since this side can't be shown readily, I have furnished some pictures from the "RARITIES" book that give you a idea of that side. This is the set used for the "RARITIES" book, so you are looking at the real "thing"!

(side-#2)-Titled "SHOTGUNS and SHELLS"-this side is just as desirable if not more so, since it also has individual Panels, (again with the red "STAGGERED SCRIPT LETTERS" and (2) of the most popular Winchester SHOTGUNS ever produced-(a Model 12, a Model 97, and the only cutaway panel of a Model 12 that was ever used on a 5 panel set. In addition the both end panels have neat pictures of Winchester "REPEATER" brand SHOTSHELLS. (NOTE)-this is a NICKLE STEEL Model 1912, and before 28 gauge was introduced! If you look hard you might find a individual panel of the guns, and even rarer you might find the center 3 panels, but to find a complete 5 panel set is truly rare, and they just don't come up for sale, the collectors keep them.

THis is another of my best conditioned 5-panel sets, its MINT on both sides, No restoration, just truly great piece. I currently have it mounted on White acid-free foam board with the GUN side facing out. I have pictures of the other side, it is MINT ALSO, but will ship it either on the foam board or just the panels themselves, your choice!

"Winchester Store BASEBALL, and BASEBALL EQUIPMENT"-ca.1923/29-(for sale!)

tim@thewinchesterstore.com
Phone: (316) 634-1877

-I have for sale a (ca.1929) LOUISVILLE SLUGGER baseball BAT rack that holds 18 bats on each side and at the top the Black wooden/gold lettered, double sided SIGN reads (in a large oval-"LOUISVILLE SLUGGER-HILLERICK & BRADSBY Co.-Louisville, Ky."). Underneath that oval on a single line it reads "LOUISVILLE SLUGGER" and the bottom two lines read "USED and ENDORSED by the-BATTING HEROES of all AGES". This a classic piece which highlights any BAT COLLECTION.

Has some very limited repairs (pegs, etc.) but still a very valuable piece. I am posting many pictures so you can see the (13) replacement wooden pegs, and the one metal rod. The last one I saw one of these for sale was on "THE ANTIQUE ROADSHOW" and it was a $10,000 piece! This is just a outstanding way to display a quality BASEBALL BAT collection!

(GOLF-"The WINCHESTER Store")--A very RARE "WINCHESTER STORE" GOLF DISPLAY/MERCHANDISING FLOOR STAND! This holds 48 clubs and is in TOTALLY ORIGINAL MINT Condition, with NO RESTORATION of ANY KIND! The TWO "WINCHESTER STORE" decals are fully intact and this item is guarrented to be what it is represented to be!

It is the only one I have ever seen in my 35 years of chasing WINCHESTER STORE items (especially SPORTS items). I missed my first opportunity to get it and finally made a TRADE/CASH deal to obtain the seriously RARE ITEM. Years ago I heard from one guy that perhaps another existed, but no pictures, no other information has ever shown up! If its "OUT THERE" it is truly buried in someones collection, and I would suspect its not in a Winchester collectors hands.

I have furnished many pictures (if you need more or perhaps some that are clearier, or from a different angle), please let me know. I love the WINCHESTER STORE stuff, but my photograher skills are limited! As you can see it has all ORIGINAL material, wood, rubber mats and LEATHER holders .These holders are amazingly ALL INTACT, NO splits, and all the original "BUTTONS" that allow the holders to move are there-(none of these fairly FRAGILE items show any wear), which I think is quite a feat! You can see the complete construction of the STAND and I have shown some pictures with WINCHESTER GOLF clubs in place, (as they would have been shown on the floor of a WINCHESTER STORE some 95 years ago!

I was an intense collector of all types of WINCHESTER STORE paper (any type of catalog, brochure, flyer, advertising etc.). One of the reasons I went to that detail was-(I originally wanted to write a complete definitive book on the WINCHESTER STORES, but age caught up with me and that amibiton died.) All that PAPER MATERIAL was complied so that I could identify all the WINCHESTER STORE items and to learn how to spot the "FAKES". I say all this to let you know that I accumlated all the known material including all the (fairly rare) catalogs with the various "BRANDS of WINCHESTER GOLF CLUBS". But Never a picture or mention of this GOLF DISPLAY STAND! Based on my experience I am surmising that this RARE STAND, never was in a Retail "WINCHESTER STORE" but instead, set up for display in the WRACo. factory (or perhaps on the second floor of the famous WINCHESTER STORE in N.Y.C.

When you review the early history of the WINCHESTER STORES, they initially set up a full MOCK-UP model of the proposed store (in the Factory at NEW HAVEN and it was fully stocked-(for employee education)! No one knows just how long this lasted, but this is one of my conclusions as to why the SPECIAL FLOOR display was built.

If you follow the normal MERCHANDISING PLan that WINCHESTER used with its stores, they would make a "PACKAGE DEAL/OFFERING" to the stores to encourge VOLUME buying. I.E. buy one of each model/color/size and a very attractive free display would be included. These displays are now quite rare and highly sought after! The price for these packages were a substantial amount for an individual store and hense not many were purchased and even fewer survived. SINCE NO LISTINGS or PICTURES of the GOLF DISPLAY have ever been found I do NOT THINK this was done for GOLF CLUBS!

I DO BELIEVE that the most plasible explanation is that it was a SPECIAL (one-off type of thing) for the NYC store. Winchester was in fierce comptetion with the other LEADING SPORTING STORES of its time and they went to great lengths to have the best available merchandise for this very attractive market (remember NO TV at this time and good HUNTING/FISHING etc was more available and it was almost "the expected thing to do". A couple of years ago I sold a LETTER that was addressed to prospective WINCHESTER SPORTING CUSTOMERS (a direct mail piece) that INVITED the LETTER HOLDER to the UPPER FLOOR of the NYC STORE for a demonstration of the GOLF CLUBS and LESSONS (an indoor room). This must have been something very special and it must not have lasted very long as this notice is rarely seen. I sold it on EBAY never thinking I would sell this display and now I wish now I still had it.

ANYWAY, that is all I know about this very rare item, I would welcome anyone with additional information or material. SO in this TOTALLY UNRESTORED condition and I am now selling one of the RARIEST items form my LIFETIME COLLECTION!

The WALL style show case included with each assortment has been found very successful as a inside store display as it attracts customers and acts as a silent saleman.

HARDWOOD CASE 32 in.long 17 in.wide, 3 in.deep, golden oak finish, green felt lined complete with hooks: hinged front door (with glass). Consists of two dozen scissors and two dozen shears as shown before.

The photo's are very poor, if you need more of them please let me know. Amazingly all the hooks, the small winchester store tags-(24 of them), the green felt, the door hook and hinges are INTACT. Its a great piece and really rare! I chose NOT to replace the ORIGINAL Green FELT, I think it needs to be cleaned up a little! I had a picture of this piece (full of Winchester Scissors) but I can't find it. I bought this in Sept.1999 from Leo R. It is ALL ORIGINAL, has NO RESTORATION of any KIND!

"Winchester Store-"CARTOON-COMEDY"-5 panel sets for sale!-SOLD OUT!)

Starting in 1928, THE WINCHESTER STORE " (Sales Service dept. changed the format of their 5-panel advertising to concentrate on a all CARTOON or COMEDY theme to help sell their HARDWARE MERCHANDISE. This was "in tune" with these popular venues of that era. This continued briefly into 1929, until the entire process was terminated! I have most, but not all of these HIGHLY DESIRABLE 5-panel sets and will sell all.ps-ALL SOLD OUT!

In 1928 the panels had a "CHAIN" around ALL the EDGES, and "The Winchester Store" in a oval, ususally at both the top and bottom. In addition each END PANEL had a red "Winchester" in STAGGERED SCRIPT LETTERS at the top.

"WINCHESTER"-Envelopes-a.k.a."Covers-FACTORY LETTERHEADS-other Correspondence"-1882/1940-(for sale!)

a rare piece of HISTORY. Dated 6-15-28 Order No. (blanked out) KG-38441, this is a Engr. Drawing for the not very well known GAS REFRIGERATING Machine. WRACo. was trying to introduce to the market place. This was a "NEW" Appliance but it proved to be too expensive. I have a brochure that shows a picture of it-I think very rare. It appears that a very limited number actually made it to the public and then the venture folded, I have never acutally seen the machine itself. This is what proved to be the final KILL OF Wraco., they spent too much money in a desperate attempt to stay alive and they just ran out of capital. THis drawing is a CYCLE CONTROL BODY BOLT and Winchester is crossed out and NATIONAL REFRIGERATING Co. written above that line. A Historical piece-mounted on white acid-free foam board and srinkwraped.

I also have similar drawings (marked "Winchester" for the more common "WINCHESTER WHIRDRY WASHING MACHINE" I have several (all different), will give BULK discount!

"Winchester WOOD SHOTSHELL CRATES"-(for sale!)

unless otherwise noted these are the very best from my lifetime collection of HEAVY HAND-MADE dovetail wooden shotshell shipping crates!

"WINCHESTER-STAR-EXTRA QUALITY"

If you own this you have one of just a handfull known to exist.! I have two wood crates that have the Winchester EXTRA QUALITY paper label glued to the side and own 3 other 25 round boxes. These are the TOP PRIZE in anybody's collection. Most of the Black print from the ends is gone, but the deeply marked handstamp remains 9.14.89 (Sept., 14 1889). This is also unique in that the original shipping address is stencilled on both of the SIDE PANELS "Louis ERKADT-Sporting Goods-Atchinson, KAN.", and then they applied the shotshell box PAPER LABEL over that. Must have been very time consuming and not very efficient. Believed to have been dropped after a short time (perhaps this run of EXTRA QUALITY boxes) as no other examples of any other Wincheste
