I have a Marlin 25-20 lever action Ser # 427654 Paten Dates Oct 11 1887 to April 1 1893. Can find model number on the gun but I know it is old.
I also have two boxes of shell. Great Grand Dad used it to hunt hogs in Arizona and Mexico.
Any information anyone can provide would be helpful. Need a value on the gun for insurance

Be safe

You can or can't find the model number? Probably on the upper tang, maybe Model 94?
If your serial number actually started with a 3 instead of a 4, it would likely be 1905.
