Not an expert by any means, but...

Several different sources say that the highest serial number for Model 1894 Winchesters is in the neighborhood of 6,590,000. So the correct serial number on your firearm is, as you note, found on the bottom of the receiver.

I've handled and owned multiple 1894 models and have never seen a 9 digit number stamped on the stock or elsewhere. Some specimens have an agency inventory or rack number applied in various places, but those I have observed seldom have more than three or four digits.

The Winchester Collectors website: https://winchestercollector.org/ may be able to help you with your question.
