You can date them by the letter prefix on guns made before 1969. From 1969-72 the first two digits were the year of mfg. From 1973 on the first two digits subtracted from 2000 will tell you what year it was made. Letter codes are: B-1939-41 c-46 d-47 e-48 f-49 g-50 h-51 j-52 k-53 l-54 m-55 n-56 p-57 r-57-58-59 t-60 u-61 v-62 w-63 y&z-64 AA-65 AB-66 AC-67 AD-68

Where is the serial number on a marlin model 80 22 rifle?

Yopu wont find a serial number anywhere, because these guns were made before the 1968 Gun Control Act which required .22 rimfire rifles to have a serial number. Prior to that many .22's didn't have serial numbers, although some makers did for their own use. Marlin only did so on lever and pump action .22's.
