My father-in-law passed away recently and in going through his possessions I came across a Model 70 rifle in the 913,000 serial number range. It did not have the box, but the Winchester hang tag was still attached to the trigger guard along with a separate price tag from a local department store which has long since gone out of business. The hang tage reads:
WINCHESTER
MODEL 70
30-06 SPRINGFIELD
SYMBOL 7004 19 INCH BARREL
MANNLICHER TYPE STOCK
PRICE

The rifle has no sight attached, but the four screws which fill the holes tapped in the receiver are still present. Their are two sling posts screwed into the stock and detachable metal mounts with a leather sling are present. There is a rubber butt plate marked with Winchester name present. The finish is 100%, the bore is bright, and I doubt if he ever fired the rifle.

I know that Winchester only made about 2400 of the Model 70's using the 19 inch barrel with the Mannlicher type stock.

I'm trying to determine an approximate value for purposes of disposing of his estate and would appreciate any comments on the values for this rifle
