Winchester introduced the 30WCF (.30-30) in 1895. It was chambered in the Winchester Model 1894. So your Marlin wasn't made in 1883 if it is a .30-30.

Welcome aboard. Good looking rifle.

We'll need the serial number and what's stamped on the barrel to help date the rifle.

And we love gun porn close-up pix of the rifle. That also helps id year and best guess value.

I also Meant to answer your question of value. Spare Parts are rare for this rifle model. If something breaks, it’s hard to replace. If the bore and action are in very good condition, I would think an asking price of $300 is fair. My local gun store has an 1893 on consignment produced in the 1930s, if I remember correctly. it is in good serviceable condition with an asking price of $425 and it has been there for the better part of a year.
No one wants a rifle that cannot have readily available parts, is what I am told by the store owner. When he does get a Marlin model 336 in 30-30, they move on quickly.

The price I pointed out as being around $300 US dollars, is what I think they are worth in my area of Wisconsin. Some others may feel it’s worth more and depends on the region.
Any rifle is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. If you feel that this rifle is something that you really wanted, then the 900 Canadian dollars you paid was worth it. It has character and age behind it and was made by skilled Craftsmen.

OP,
I made a mistake and gave you what would be the price for a model Marlin Model 36, not an 1893. I have looked at way too many Marlin models lately and got them mixed up.
The post by Mike Briton may be more in line with the value.
