As we've mentioned a few times before, 2016 marks the 150th Anniversary for the cumulative Winchester brands. As you might expect, commemorative product releases are coming—some have already dropped, like the 150th Anniversary Model 73 we saw at SHOT Show 2016. Next up on the list is Winchester Ammo's recently announced custom-built, collectible cartridge-firearm boards. There will be five in all.

“In a milestone year for Winchester, we are extremely proud to offer this very limited, once-in-a-lifetime series of five cartridge-firearm boards, which truly represent legacy and innovation,” said Brett Flaugher, Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Strategy. “A lot of time and meticulous work goes into building these boards … they are remarkable pieces of art.”

Each framed collectible board features historic ammunition cartridges, nostalgic packaging and the new Winchester 150th anniversary medallion. The collectible firearms feature in each cartridge board were selected because they embody the Winchester heritage.

The lineup includes:

• Model 1866 Yellow Boy Chambered in 44 Rimfire
• Model 12, 20 Gauge
• Model 1873 .38-40 Cal. Made in 1882
• Model 1894 Lever Action Rifle in .30 WCF
• Model 70 (pre-1964) .30-06
