Inherited 2 marlin rifles last year. Confused on year manufactured. I know the usual dating process but these I a not sure of. The first one looks to be a centennial ( has medallion) and the serial starts with 70 then a space then rest of the numbers. The second one is a 336 in .35 and the serial number starts with a 70•••••. I have my thoughts but would like opinions. Thanks.

I agree. Both should be '70 production.

I've never seen a '69 with the space, but the '70s that I've seen and owned sometimes have a bit of a space between the prefix and serial.

Thanks guys. That is what I was thinking but wanted to make sure. Having to date and value rifles for the family. I believe I am good on the rest. They belonged to my father in law and I got them instead of his kids. He would always use the .35 and -until I got one of my own- let me use the .39-30. Which is awesome because the 2 of us are the only ones to shoot either of them. He bought both new.

IMO, this forum does a great job with the photos. I spend a lot of time on ingunowners.com. Their way of handling photos is confusing, complicated, and unreliable. You folks are experts compared to that forum's system.
