    Mr. Brophy passed from the scene long before those were produced, so the Marlin "bible" has no mention of them. Would take some effort by a motivated collector to poll the community for serials and make an estimate. Marlin itself has ceased to exist and unless its records have passed into someone's hands that had an interest, there's no record of what was made when. Certainly Remlington has no interest in stuff it didn't make.

    I suspect the Cowboy versions were made up from leftovers of other commemorative models rather than selling them off to the likes of Numrich. When there were no more parts, no more Cowboys. The fancy wood was probably from the Annie Oakleys. Probably a fairly short run.
