John, you have the western hat but apparently the western tradition for lever action guns. There's just something about those lever action guns that grabs you. Also, the Henry will hold its resale value much better than the Marlin 60 and the Henry will shoot whatever ammo you load it with. I would go with the Henry.for what? 2 of my friends have henry lever action .22's and I always bag more bunnies than they do. They sometimes ask me to trade "for a little while" while we are in the field.
besides the fact that it's appealing as a lever action, it's usefulness isn't any higher.
besides, the final word on accuracy and shooting is the shooter. don't blame the gun, blame the operator.
