The man is an artist, there’s no denying ! … The one on his long rifle is pretty impressive as well. Fantastic job !

Since I don't know of a model 1498, I emailed Joe Murfin. His reply: "Mark : I'm stumped.  I just don't know.  Joe."

I'd say it was a carton or call number for a model 98, but that falls apart because the early 98 that used the rear peep/vee flip sight has a sight mounting pad with a ducktail that would have been in the way (the example below is missing the flip sight). The later 98s used a forward-mounted open sight

Yeah, that’s an odd one alright.
The only models I’m aware of that used that style sight are the 99, 299, and early 499.
So I only see 3 possibilities:
A misprint.
A model Daisy designed but never put into production.
Something Daisy built for someone else (Sears, Western Auto, etc.)

Probably never know….
