I recently received a shotgun from a friend and I am trying to identify the model and date manufactured and value if possible. The gun I received was a marlin pump shotgun with a hammer. The barrel is stamped "marlin firearms co New Haven Ct, pat'd nov 8, 1894, may 12, 1896, and june 2, 1896. The serial number on the barrel is 15465 and the serial number on the receiver is 15266. Can anyone tell me how old this gun is and if it is worth anything.

The first Marlin Slide action Hammer gun was made in 1898 and called the Model 1898, They made about a dozen models after that, but I believe they were all variations of the model 1898, The last hammer model was made in 1915. All the Marlin Shotguns I have see, have a model number on them, as to value, $100 to $300, depending on condition, Higher if it is a higher grade engraved Model.. Bushrod

Bushrod, Didn't Marlin put out a notice that the M1898 and it's clones may be unsafe to shoot?
