CONDITION: Very fine. The barrel and magazine retain 80% original blue finish with the balance thinning to a brown. Patterns of original case colors remain on the forend cap and buttplate. The receiver, hammer and lever retain 70% original case colors with the most striking colors in and around the sheltered areas. The engraving is crisp. Half of the original blue remains on the loading gate. The wood is also very fine with minor dings and scratches and crisp checkering overall. Mechanically excellent. A true work of Marlin artistry towards the turn of the century that will be a welcomed addition to any Marlin, lever action or firearms art collection. Provenance: The Tom Selleck Collection.
Estimate: 60,000 - 80,000
