Timbo68: Sir, my research. An example was included. "Welcome from NC"

On Marlin-branded Model 60 rifles, the first two digits of the serial number indicate the year of manufacture. For example, if the serial number starts with 18... The 18 is significant, for subtracting it from 2000 gives the date of manufacture for the rifle, 1982. Likewise, a serial number starting with 17 would be a rifle manufactured in 1983. Therefore your Model 60 was manufactured in
1978.
.

This method has not been uniformly followed. It is valid only from 1971 through 1999. Prior to 1971, the first two digits indicated the year of manufacture. For example, a rifle with a serial number starting with 70... would have been made in 1970. Starting in 2000, this same old method has returned; the first two digits once more indicate the year of manufacture directly, with no subtraction required.

Neophyte. . Are you telling me that my rifle was made in 1978? That is incorrect. My serial number begins with 71. Rifles made between 1968 & 1971 (including some of the models made in 68&71) use the first 2 digits to reveal the date with no subtraction necessary. I can vouch for this as my father kept the receipt. He bought this rifle on March 1st 1971 for my birthday

Let's just say that if the SN is lower than 71XXXXXX than you need to subtract the first 2 digits.... from 2000

View attachment 84281 I have a Glenfield Model 60 no serial numbers how do I determine the year
On that same side of the barrel, close to the reciever,
should be a two-letter code that is NOT JM in a circle.
That's the Date Code of the barrel.
Put the date code into the Marlin converter and it'll give you
the answer, or you can post it here, or a pic of it, and we'll tell ya :)

My Glenfield model 60. Is 71467379. If I am correct this is a 1971. There is a semi circle on the barrel where the older ones had a date code that has a jm stamped inside it.
Cam you tell me there year of this serial number for a marlin.. 72201137
