1894  GOLDEN SPIKE
"Replica Centennial Rifle Crafted by Daisy".
Only model I've ever seen that has that inscribed on the barrel. 
Metalic gold (not paint), curved butt plate
Mod 799.19052

You're right!  I forgot to look at the cursive script by the oil hole.  The Golden Boy just has "Crafted By Daisy", and the Golden Spike has "Replica Centennial Rifle Crafted by Daisy".  I put a picture of the two back in my earlier post, showing the difference in receiver color.

Think we have just confirmed a "puzzle" that few know about.
Some time ago I had a discussion with BAKERS AIRGUNS about a GOLDEN SPIKE they had listed. I asked how it differed from the golden boy and was told "There is no difference". Then I asked how they knew they had a Golden Spike and never got an answer. I guess they were correct (????) only difference is the "script"

Does anyone care to share pictures and what models they are of their 1894s? We could make something of a visual record here in the forum. If anyone want to send their pictures to me, I'll happily do the legwork of posting them. Or maybe a good question is, does anyone else think this is worth doing? ;)

GREAT IDEA !!!!
One gun at a time?
Or, groups, or Collections?
If you do groups, I would suggest no more than 2 at a time.

Marv, hope you are gonna' be O.K.

The flat finish looks similar to a Sears version of the 880 I have. I bet it was reserved for their branded guns.

So Marv, I think I agree that singles or small groups is the best way to go.  I also think we should start another thread with the pictures.  Maybe other users will use it as a repository over time.

I can take pics but no good at "posting" them.
Why don't you start a new thread and post a few singles.. that could give an idea as to how we can contribute.
