I think this ad falls under the category of wishful thinking by a dreamer.

Pretty cheeky, but I guess it never hurts to ask.

Weird that Daisy is upside down on the one side. Never seen that

The poster of that BB gun (Mark in Ark) just ran that price to get attention to this particular oddity. All he wants is information about the incorrect stamping on the receiver. Daisy Museum didn't answer him and when I posted a picture of his gun here, got no response. So I guess he is out of luck.

FWIW, I messaged him on ebay. It's a known misstrike or variation however one chooses to look at it. I told him I have no idea of the value or the production number of his upside down Daisy model H, but it is scarce by any estimation. And Gumslinger is 100% right on why the owner listed it. Thumbs Up

X2 for what Gumslinger , Cobalt327 Stevec and BB1Shooter stated. I agree with all of them.

Wouldn't the answer be in the method by which the gun was stamped? I highly doubt it was automated back then. I assume the stamp process was done while the metal was flat & the operator simply forgot to turn the piece over, or the stamp was never reversed for the second pass.
Favorite guns; Daisy's, Benji's & Sheridan's
