Need some info help on a Marlin 20 gauge Model 90

Hello All,

My name is Jason (in FL.)

I am new to the forum and I have a Marlin 20 gauge Model 90 (I think a 1952) that my grandfather gave me to sell.

Its ser # is J299

Its in great shape

He thinks he got it from Sears back in the day

I was just wondering how much money I should ask for this gun?

Thanks and here are some pics:

Jason,
Your pictures are not posting.
If the wood has no cracks, no bad digs or scratches and the barrels lock tight with little to no rust or heavy wear to the blueing, then don't ask less than $300. If the gun is like new and spent it's life in a safe much more. If it was hunted hard and shows lots of wear much less. Year of mfg should be 1953.

Here is one listed. I think they are dreaming on the asking price but... :
MARLIN MODEL 90, MADE FOR SEARS, 20GA - Marlin Shotguns

My question? Why would you sell your Grandfathers gun? It should be priceless to you because it is your Grandfathers.

X2 or more like X200.

I realize that for some people, guns are just guns, regardless of who used to own them. But this is something you're likely going to kick yourself for selling later.

I've only sold two guns... guns I bought. Only one of 'em I am glad I sold, the other I wish I had back. Can't imagine selling one that has history in the family.

But to each his or her own.
