D prefix Marlin 1893's are always post WWI era. The Marlin company was sold to Rockwell Intl. during WWI, and after the War the company was resold to the Marlin Firearms Corporation. At that time serial numbers were restarted, and prefix letters added. These first post WWI guns were assembled from leftover pre-War parts, and so some 1893's with prefix letters are found after WWI. Your gun was most likely from around 1922-23 era. It may also have the "Marlin Firearms Corporation" rollstamp on the barrel.

How old is a Marlin 30-30 Model 1893 serial number D19 having a round barrel and has the designation Model 1893 not Model 93?
I can give you some general info from the 2008 standard catalog of firearms: The barrel on earlier guns is marked "Marlin FireArms Co. New Haven, Ct,U.S.A./ patented Oct. 11….1887.April 2.1889.Aug.1.1893." In 1993 the markings were changed to "The Marlin Firearms Corporation/ New Haven, Conn.U.S.A.Patented." The rifles manufactured after 1904 are marked"Special Smokeless Steel" on the left side of the barrel. There were approximately 900,000 manufactured between 1893 and 1935. Hope that helps.
The last Marlin I can find records for is serial # 355300 which was made in 1906 so I'm guessing yours was made around 1910 or so.
It was made in 1899
your marlin was made in 1906.
On the bottom of the receiver in front of the lever just before the fore stock. There is a screw right below the number.
your marlin model 1893 was produced in 1899.

The value of firearms such as your Marlin is heavily dependent on condition. A check of selling prices over the past year for an 1893 ranges from $500 to $1,600. Sorry, but yo…u will need a hands-on appraisal from a good dealer. PS- nice rifle.
