1893 with "A" prefix serial #

I have A Marlin 1893 .30-30 with serial # A60XX.

My question is what year is this rifle?

Has an Octogon 26" barrel, Smokeless steel, Marlin Firearms Co., "Model 1983" on tang.

Thanks in advance,
Jon

Jon. It appears that during the Marlin-Rockwell era some sporting rifle were assembled in spare time
between machine gun contracts.These rifles were assembled from parts left on hand from the Marlin
company.The A,B,C and D prefix shows up on these rifles.This time frame would be from 1916-1921 ?.

Correct. So maybe one could "assume" 1916-1917.
