I have a shotgun Marlin model 55 12 gauge goose gun. The problem I am having is I can not find the serial number anywhere on it. Can anyone help me out?

Thank you. I got this from my step father when he passed. I have had it for about 13 years. I keep it in my gun cabnet sideways because it is so long. I have never fired it only pull it out to wipe it down. It does have the sling swivels. Thanks again

That would make it a model 55 Goose Gun manufactured between 1964 and 1967.
That's as close as you will get, as far as manufacture date.

😂🤣😂

The one that sold for $325.00 was rated at 92%... So your one is obviously worth more...

Gun values are all over the place, and it depends on so many different factors that it's hard to pin down an absolute gun value. It ultimately depends on how much a buyer is willing to pay, and how much the seller is willing to settle on.

Are you sure those were unfired shotguns. Did you have them in your possession to physically inspect them with your own eyes
I bought one a few months ago in 90% condition for $200 flat. That was after I felt bad for it since it was sitting on the shelf so long. They are cool, but they are not big ticket guns. $200-$250 is the going rate around here and they tend to sit a while.

The demand for these is low, and thus so is the price. Look at what is selling now, short barrels and plastic stocks with interchangeable choke tubes.
