I often use this site Marlin Manufacture Dates and searched your serial number and this is the result: The year of manufacture for serial number 3905 is Before 1883.

Can you post a full picture of the Marlin? Please include some close up views of the barrel stamp and any other stamps on the rifle.

It is probably a Model 39, made around 1922-23. No pre-fix the first 3 years.

Do not shoot high velocity ammo in a rifle that old or damage could result. Remington brought out high speed .22 rimfire ammo in 1930 so any rifle made before that should use standard velocity only.

Welcome from the Ouachita mountains of Arkansas. That is one fine rifle. If it were mine it would be "priceless" as oldschoolron60 said.
