I have a near minty 1952 Marlin 39A. The bluing is *near* perfect with only extremely slight freckling. The wood is in amazing shape as is the buttplate and white spacer. The gun fires perfectly, damn near as accurate as anything else I have. Sight hood still in good shape. One problem with the gun is the forend cap is slightly buggered up and the band that holds the mag tube to the barrel is a bit loose in the dovetail. Nothing that interferes with the operation of the gun.
I'm asking $400 either FTF in NC, or $425 shipped to your FFL.
