Set of 1894 Marlin Lever Action 44 Mag 357 Mag Carbine questions

Hey y'all.

I recently acquired two Marlin Lever Action 357 Mag Carbine and a 44 Mag lever action rifles in really great condition. Searching serial numbers, one was manufactured in 1982. Both in great working condition. Can you tell me about these perhaps. I am an FFL and I am wondering if I should sell these or just hang on to them. They came as a set in a vintage wooden box with red felt lining. Really neat!

Marlin model 1894 .357 mag lever action carbine

Straight stock

18103964 Serial Number

Marlin model 1894 lever action .44 mag

gold trigger

straight stock

19124939 Serial Number

What do you all think?

Nice! I really can't opine on whether you should sell them or not, but, if you do:

1.) Sell them as a set, not separatly.
2.) Ask a ridiculously high price for them!!!!!!

That way your chance of keeping them will increase.

Definitely will sell as a set. Question is how much?! I might even just keep them due to the condition, but for the right price, I would sell. I've seen some on gun broker going for a nice penny.

I'd start at $2,500 as a set. Gunbroker shows asking prices of $1000 plus for single 1894s. I paid $125 for mine in .357 but didn't keep it. IMO, Marlin's are better guns than Winchester.
