I also have a model 100 Ted Williams .30 - 30 lever action rifle in superb condition. I believe that the value of mine is in the $300 to $400 range. The serial number you gave is not the serial number, but the Sears catalog number. To find the serial number turn the rifle upside down and look on the lower reciever. The serial number will start with a letter then followed by a sequence of numbers. In my case, it starts with a "V".
Of the three different cross reference list I examined...The host's list..www.wisnersinc.com and www.hoosiergunworks.com, only one showed this model as a Ted Williams Model 100 and that was the Hoosier chart. Both GPC and Wisner's listed a "Sears" Model 100 as a NM94 by Winchester as well as a series of M-94 that carried the Sears Model 54 designation..All should carry the Sears product code for Sears..273.xxxxxx with the 273 designating "Sears" and those digits after the decimal point catalogging specific features of the product..like barrel length,finish,sights, swivels etc. However the Wisner list does denote that all the Winchester Model 94 marketed thru Sears are of the Post 64 models( a collector and design change cut-off for Winchesters is Pre-64=GOOD and post-64= not so good) As for the serial number to DOM, I have no Sears exclusive list and nothing showing a prefix letter of "V"..the serial number you list,sans the "V" would make your 94 a pre-64 maybe as far back as pre-1900 and I just don't see that as an option. You might find some help with the DOM at this e-mail address email@example.com As to value..as a rule of thumb, "Hardware" guns(those made by an established maker for another retail outlet) are generally considered to be "cheaped" down versions of the companies own retail offerings. Most of these things would be cosmetic in nature, but I have seen examples where lots of discontinued parts from another model are utilized on Hardware guns. If that is the case,EXAMPLE: You need a front sight assy and you order the Winchester listed part number and you get one that is different..then this may be the reason..to my knowledge there is no list of unique parts to hardware guns of any maker! A Standard Grade Post 64 Model 94 in 30-30 with the Winchester name shows these published values(Ranger version) NIB=$400..ECX=$300...VG=$225...Good=$150..Fair=$100 and Poor=$75 The Ranger would be comparable to the Sears version and the value would drop by a grade with the Sears trademark/tradename. Figures from The Standard Catalog of Firearms..opinions are mine! Hope this is of some help. Zeke 2b1af7f3a8
