Not sure I am doing this correctly but here goes. This is a mint condition 1892 Marlin 22 with the original canvas case. It was mfg around 1912 from what I can gather. It was my father-in-law gun and was in storage about 70 years. Anyone help with its value?
Check the gun auctions sites and see what they are going for.
Nice looking rifle, Fancy wood! Is the blue just gone or was it removed for a re-blue. Also looks like it's got a Hepburn peep sight on it. If that's that case, the sight is worth as much as the rifle.

I had it inspected by a firearms collector and he said it is nickel finish. he said very rare

My father-in-law said his uncle bought it for him when he was 11. He died 3 years ago but before he died he said his uncle bought it from a Marlin salesman so I am sure its original. The wood is wonderful walnut!

It's a beautiful rifle.
Being that it's a family rifle, I'm curious as to why you wouldn't want to keep it?

Your pics aren’t real clear, so it’s hard to tell if it’s factory nickel. It sure looks like real deluxe checkered wood. With better pics, it would be better to accurately price it. If non factory finish, with good bore, I’d say $600-700. If factory it would go much higher depending on bore, if nice bore and factory finish on metal and wood, $1200-1800 at auction
If it was in my family I would surly keep it!! I have a lot of old pre-WW1 Marlins, one from the family would be the most prized!
