I found a 39A with serial number U43x7. How old is it?

The "U" prefix indicates manufacture in 1961, maybe late 1960.

Thanks for asking this question. Through the answer I found out that my Marlin 39A, which I bought from an Air Force rifle coach in 1971, was made about 1957. I was always curious just how old it was.
