I would need more information to narrow down the date of manufacture on your '93. The model '93 Marlins were all made after WWI, as that is when they began marking the receivers with the "Model '93" designation. The catalogs indicated a change in name designation in 1906, but Marlin continued to use and mark the tangs with the old designation until production resumed after WWI. Most likely your gun was made in the 1922-1935 range, but when in that range depends on several things. The barrel rollstamps were of three types. One that read, "Marlin Firearms Corporation", "Marlin Firearms Co." and Marlin Fire-Arms Co." In addition, most guns from the mid to late 1920's had the typical Marlin "Bullseye" in the bottom of the buttstock, about 3" in front of the buttplate. Earlier and later post WWI Marlins did not have the Bullseye. As for value, it's hard to quote a value on antique Marlins without seeing them. Many things (including condition) will affect values. Special order options were numerous, and you didn't mention whether yu have a straight grip stock, pistol grip, half or full magazine, checkering, engraving, special sights, etc. Without seeing at least a picture of your gun, it could be a huge difference in value from a very nice gun to a very nice gun with options. If you'd like to email me a picture, I might further assist you. firstname.lastname@example.org The Marlin 1893 was manufactured between 1893 and 1936. The blue book value for a 90 % gun is $1800.
Exactly how is that barrel marked? email@example.com

Roughly 1900. Since Marlin mixed serial numbers between models on the early levers it can be hard to pin down exactly. As to caliber, look on the top flat of the barrel. firstname.lastname@example.org
