As long as I am playing show and tell, here is a model 64 made about 1953/1955 that I lucked into years ago. I think it was unfired and I might have put a box or two through it.

Back in the 1950`s my dad and I were deer hunting in northern wisconsin. We came across a hunter that had just missed a nice buck with another nice 64 in .32 special. He blamed the gun. Dad bought it from him on the spot for $50! It had a lyman peep and sling. We gave the guy, a local farmer a ride to his house to pick up a shotgun so he could finish out the day. Through the years dad shot some deer with it. Eventually dad got alzheimers. I went home to find that he had traded that 64 for a Remington 760 in 30/06. I thought he got took but said nothing. I inherited the remington. Dad shot his last nice buck with it at about 87 or 88 years old. I had it in the safe for almost ten years before I got around to trying it out. I was pleasantly surprised! Accurate with that peep! Dad had peep sights on all his centerfire rifles.
The Model 64 is a favorite of mine, they got everything right on em!
Okay, here's my two antique 1894's. The rifle was a special order from 1898 in .30WCF, the carbine is standard factory also made in 1898. It was a .30WCF also, but the bore has pits large enough to hide a VW Bug! I sent it off to JES Reboring and now it's a very shootable .38-55.
Here’s my 94 Winchester. Made in 1949, one year younger than me and it is still alive and kicking. Received it for Christmas when I was 14 years old along with a 1917 Enfield.
Deer was shot past December and at 70-75 yards. He traveled less than 15 yards.
What is not to like about a Model 94. Arguably the world's first modern rifle. It has a very long and rich history.
This all started with one gun!

My 1948 .32 Special carbine has the front "flat band" that were on carbines in about a three year period. It doesn't seem to be a feature that adds more value, though.
