However even with it being serial 1 condition is still a significant factor in determining it's value and no information about that is given. http://wiki.answers.com/wiki.phtml?title=I_have_an_1891_marlin_tackdown_22_SN-56656_VGC_shoots_VG_what_can_you_tell_me_about_the_history_value_ect_TNX_joe&action=edit§ion=new
Serial numbers were required per a 1968 firearms act. Marlin .22's produced prior to this were not required to have serial numbers stamped on the weapon and marlin decided it was not productive to do so. Although they did stamp some earlier models they discontinued the practice. My Marlin model 56 made in 1960 also has no serial number.
