It might not exactly be the original holy grail, but the selling price might make you think so.

I bought a really nice Marlin Golden Mountie that was made in 1980 two years ago. Really nice shape too and paid less than 1/7 of the current bid on that 39A. Must be real nice to have money to just burn! Burn baby burn!

To each his/her own I guess, but for half that price it better not have handling marks at all. Even if they are slight! Just goes to show what some people will do. Good luck and good shootin.
Darn, don't worry about a little honest wear on this gun, I'll bet it shoots like a new one. Hard to find one that doesn't.
