How long are normal Marlin 39A serial numbers?
I picked one up today which has a 4 digit number preceded by what I *think* is a J.
I say think because it would only be the lower half of the J. It is about 1/2 the height of the numbers, and it has a little "hook" for lack of a better word going back to the right on the end of the left of the letter.
I'm assuming it's a 1952, but I'm curious because of the length of the other #'s posted here.
Thanks,
Jason

Question Marlin 39A without prefix

Marlin 39A Serial #99138063

Does this mean that this rifle was made in 2001?

Thank you.

68 serial#

In 1972 Marlin changed to using the digit subtracted from 100. Your serial# starting with 68 indicates a manufactured date of 1968.

1957 was the year Marlin introduced the "Golden" 39a. Microgroove rifling started in 1954. The "Mountie" was introduced, in 1953, but had a 24" barrel which was changed to 20" in 1954.

Hi, there
My colleague is going to buy a used Marlin 39A as pictures shown below. I tried to find out the date of birt of such a rifle but it seemed to me that the serial no. was not included in the Chart. Any recommendation?
