As a true connoisseur of weapons. I am a pretty good read on gun prices and real values of guns. I like to go to my local Cabelas every once in a while and muse at the prices they throw out on their used weapons. It's amazes me that people would pay there prices listed. I just happened upon a Marlin 39A setting on thier used gun rack. I picked it up and gave it a quick look and then looked at the price tag. It was $349.00. Three years ago I sold one for $475.00 to a friend. Taking time to really look it over, It was in excellent condition. No rust, no mars on the wood. Bluing was almost perfect. The butt plate looked as if it never had seen the ground. It was missing the rear sight, but that was do to it being scoped at one time. So now I was really jazzed at what I was holding. Now comes the interesting part. Looking at the grip cap. I noticed a brass insert that looked like a peanut. I had never seen this before. So looking up the serial #, the Marlin is a 1951 specimen. And reading on what this brass insert on the grip cap was, it was to have your initials engraved on it. It was the only year they did this. It seems as people have used the moniquer of the "Peanut Edition" for this weapon. I asked for a bore light to see the bore. It was mint ballard rifling. So with that I snatched it up and took it home to join the family. So this day Cabelas lost out, and I won out.
