This week's auction item is a very limited edition, engraved, No. 1-S rifle chambered in .270 Winchester. The serial number of this rifle is WBR-097, and it was roll-marked on September 8, 2016. These No. 1 rifles commemorated the 100th birthday of William B. Ruger and were only manufactured in 2016. The original list price was $1499.00. William Batterman Ruger was born on June 21, 1916 and passed away on July 6, 2002, at the age of 86. In 2016 the Company celebrated his life and achievements by producing a special, engraved, limited edition No. 1-S Rifle. There were only 100 of these rifles produced with special prefix serial numbers ranging from "WBR-001 – WBR-100." This rifle was shipped to Baron Technology in Trumbull, CT on December 7, 2016 to be engraved. It features a scroll-style engraving on the left-side of the receiver with a gold-embellished design with "WBR" and "Centennial Edition" in the center. The right-side has the same scroll-style engraving with a gold-embellished Ruger® Eagle logo and "1916" and "2016" in the center of the receiver.
