My assumption you're speaking about a damaged butt stock and my response below in that reference. You need to clarify!
My Model 94 in 25-35 Win, Sn 1,3445xxx was made in early October 1945 according to Polishing Room records. It’s cross-hatch butt plate is reflected in the pix below. The only other such and earlier “war years era” butt plate was the serrated style termed “Model 55” and occurring on the Model 94. Pix of mine from a Model 55, reflected below.
Concerning serialization, the following Threads also having reference to butt plates.
Possibly you’ll find the below Winchester Collector Association Forum Threads of interest. https://winchestercollector.org/for...-94-post-war-change-serial-number-range/https://winchestercollector.org/forum/winchester-rifles/model-94-war-years/https://winchestercollector.org/forum/winchester-rifles/model-94-war-years/page-2/
