SPECTACULAR JOHN ULRICH ENGRAVED GOLD AND NICKEL WINCHESTER MODEL 1873 SADDLE RING CARBINE. Cal. 44 WCF (44-40). SN 35248. OVER LOOKED EYE of PROVENANCE NOT DOCUMENTED BEFORE.

Sold at James D, Julia  Inc. auctions in fall of 2006, here is one of the rarest Masonic All Seeing Eye’s seen on a John Ulrich model 1873. Both sides of the rifle on the fwd panels, centered in the center of a geometric diamond pattern “CROSS” is an “All Seeing Eye”

What makes this exceptionally unique is that this is the first time a “Masonic Eye” of such is on a documented signed gun my John Ulrich. But to not have been noticed until now for what the symbolism factually is representing is amazing because this is not hidden and can be seen for exactly what it represents with Freemasonry.

Pictured above you can see a traditional Masonic stepped pyramid in plain sight, where often its seen as a partial scroll on several documented Ulrich works on Winchesters!

    • It was listed a few years ago at an auction estimate of $110k-$130k what it sold for I don’t know. The information I found increased its historical value and would have sold for more if it was correctly catalogued! Kind Regards Gary
