Marlin 1895 - New York Limited Edition 1 of 10

Being a refugee from NY, my interest in this rifle, up for auction, was immediately piqued when I saw photos of it. The irony of a rifle that has the engraving "A Tribute To Freedom" on its barrel and the state name "New York" elsewhere on the rifle is intense. I'd love to own it if for no other reason than as a fuck you to New York's current anti-gun politics. That's the same reason I love my Henry Repeating Arms lever action rifle in 22 Mag - it's stamped Made In Brooklyn! As for this rifle, being it is 1 of 10 also gives it great appeal.

See it here:

My guess is that this one will go for over 3K - maybe as much as 5K; it is one nice rifle. Who knows, maybe I will hit the lotto before the 20th and will be able to afford the winning bid but otherwise I am afraid any bid I place will be swiftly outbid. 

I have not been able to find anything when it comes to info on this one. So, if anyone has or knows of any info on this particular model or its value, please can you direct me to it? Not that I expect anyone from a state other than NY to have much interest in a gun with New York engraved on it but I had to ask just in case someone does have knowledge of it. Thanks.

All the best,
