I wish I knew how to post pics but I haven't quite learned how. Here's a link where hopefully you can take a look at her; https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/americanvintageairguns/viewtopic.php?f=405945&t=8828&p=56488#p56488

Thank you for the kind words & yes I'm happy to say she is mine. I've been looking for one for quite some time.  

The gun is in great condition. The lever is tight & smooth & she shoots strong. Which doesn't surprise me given the care she's had. The box is just as nice. Unfortunately the photo doesn't do it justice. The graphics are much brighter than what shows up in the pic. Pretty neat considering she's 80 years old.

Thanks Mark. Something told me you'd come through with the pics.

I have a question about the fastener above the saddle ring. It has a internal tooth lock washer, so I looked at other photos best I could & it appears to be factory. Is this true? I guess I found it odd that Daisy would risk marring up the face.

That's great! They're neat little guns. Love that adjustable rear sight.

I've come across many older Daisy's with those star washers. Some have more than one but I believe they are factory. Why the varying amount? Best I can figure, if someone was "tinkering" with their gun and lost the washers, they just put it back together without it and hoped nothing came loose. I've even seen the tell-tale marks from where the washers used to be. So, yes, they can mar the finish a little.

Thanks Airitis. BTW, I am pretty sure the stock fastener is missing a flat washer. I can see where (maybe) there was one previously. If anyone has an old one they can spare, please let me know.
