Chuck,
I'm sitting here looking at "Marlin Firearms" by Brophy. If you have that book it could be a place to start, other than a picture since we have no idea what you have. Anyway, on page 525 there is a picture and description of a counter pad made of a plastic material "looking like burled wood" commemorating "100 YEARS OF AMERICAN GUNMAKING." It says that few have survived intact. There's a Marlin medallion in the center 1870-1970 and it has "Rifles" on the left and "Shotguns" on the right. If this is it someone may have an idea of its value.

The one I have is a real wooden burl.It has Marlin across the top then down a bit on the left it has a horse and rider on the right it says since 1870 and right in the middle it has a rifle.I wish I knew how to put pics up but I am not very computer savvy.I would sure like to know just what it is.
Thanks
Chuck
