Old 94 win. No sights

I found an old 94 Winchester today. It is old and rusty. Ser.# 93### puts
it back to 1897 mfg.. It is chambered for and marked on the barrel as
.38-55. The barrel is stamped with the Winchester name and address in
two lines near the mid-point of the barrel. The barrel measures 26 in.
from the muzzle to the back of the action ring. The magazine is 14-3/4 in.
from muzzle to metal forend cap. The tang is stamped with the maker,
model and patent date in three lines. In addition to the tang screw there is a small screw 3/4 in. behind the hammer.

All O.K. so far.

The kicker is: NO SIGHTS, FRONT OR REAR and no evidence of any
dovetail slots or any holes.

Any ideas ???

Do you have any marking like these on the barrel, perhaps the barrel has been replaced at some point if you don't.
