I don't think anyone really knows how rare any of the Marlin pumps are - I actually have seen more Model 47's than some of the other Models, or variations of models. I talked to an old Marlin collector about rarity of the pumps and all he had to say was that "all Marlin pump 22's are rare". Try and find a 29-N, a 32, a 20-S, a 25 or 25-S, I rate those in rarity with the 47's, or some even rarer. I'm still looking for a reasonably priced nice 29-N. (can trade a 47 with decent case colors but a cracked stock as part of a deal).
