    Marlin Collectors
    If I wanted to sell: a 1951 Marlin 39A in excellent condition a 1965 Marlin 39M in almost new condition a 1971 Marlin 39D in good condition Would they sell for more, and more quickly, if sold separately or as a package? I'm not saying I would sell them, but if I did, which way would you go...
