I'm not a Marlin expert, but I think your rifle is the 336 "Texan" configuration, i.e., carbine length, straight butt stock (no pistol grip) and lever, full length magazine. Not sure about the gold saddle ring, might have been unique to the 100th year. I believe these rifles were only made for one year. I have the .22 version with octagon barrel, carbine length, curved brass buttplate. The "coin" on mine is mounted on the right side of the receiver, and there was a small brass plaque on the stock but that's missing. Your rifle may have some collector value, although that would be compromised if the receiver was drilled for scope mounts and by the sling swivel mounted on the stock.
