Default Model 94 Silver Dollar?

Hey I got a 1971 Win 94 30-30 for christmas. It has a 1894 Silver Dollar inlayed into the stock. I was told before that its one of the commemoratives but i cant find anything on it. Can anyone tell me anything about it? Let me know if you need more info.

The only Commemorative rifle that it shows that Winchester produced in 1971 was the NRA Centennial rifle and also a matching musket.They both had NRA 1871-1971 engraved on the receivers,and a NRA medallion in the buttstock.

Winchester wasn't the only company that made Commemorative rifles,even today there are many Hunting/Fishing organizations that have Commemorative rifles/shotguns/pistols made every year.
They are only worth what someone is willing to pay for them,and mainly that is whatever that particular rifle is worth in the Gun Values-Blue Book.

I can find no references to a Winchester made commemerative with a silver dollar inlayed in the stock. Most of the commemratives from Winchester have a medallion inlayed in the stick, but not a silver dollar. If yours does have such an inlay it could have replaced a factory medallion or the commerative could be from one of many companies that did customizing of factory rifles.

What else does the rifle say on it?

When I was gunsmithing people had me inlay different items in their rifle stocks. it might not be factory done.

Guessing someone removed the medallion, and replaced with silver dollar. With the price of silver, I'd say it increased the value.
If it don't have a mint mark, its worth more than the gun. Id be very tempted to take it out and check.

Especially if its one of those collectible coins. It'd be worth it to me to pry it out and sell the coin if it is.

Since it has no markings on the receiver,it probably isn't a commemorative rifle,just a rifle that someone put a silver dollar in the butt-stock. The Value is whatever a Winchester 30-30 is going for in your area.
It looks like a nice rifle,enjoy shooting it.
