It probably did not leave the factory with that finish. I would guess that the serial number is unreadable because the gun was polished too aggressively by whoever added the nickel plating. Without the serial number, a Winchester expert may be able to approximate the manufacture date by examining the gun, but the exact year cannot be determined.
