Three way rear sight on 1906 mfg 1912

What is this sight called and does it effect the value of the rifle? Of all the '06 pictures on the net if never seen one... it's off being appraised at the moment else id take a picture...

The sight has three positions, "V", Bar, and folded flat...

Ideas?

What you describe sounds like a Lyman No.6 folding sight. Stroebel's book values it at $75-125. They usually sell on Ebay in the lower end of that range.

That's the one! Was that original or was it added later? Thanks. I've decided not to sell it, I like it too much.

It was offered as an optional (special order) rear sight by Winchester on the model 1906. Likely original, especially if there's no evidence of a leaf sight originally mounted on the barrel.

Does it have a tang sight?
