your scope was made between 1965 & 1969 by the marlin firearms co. since it is stamped as made in Japan it looks as if Marlin themselves contracted one of the optics mfr in Japan to produce them. there is no reference to another scope co's design being used and just haveing Marlins name slapped on it like Browning did with their Bushnell made scopes. i'm useing Nick Stroebels newer book as my referance. it list a value if 175.00-275.00
