Joe;

The "D" serial number prefix, and the 1893 model designation will make this a 1919/1920 manufactured gun. After 1921, the serial number was moved back under the lever and the model designation was changed to Marlin Mod. '93. This rifle was actually manufactured by the Marlin-Rockwell Corporation which bought the Marlin Firearms Company in late 1915 then took over the business in 1916 to manufacture machine guns for the war. For the most part, many of the sporting arms produced during WW I were assembled from parts on hand to keep employees busy between contracts.
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there be no warning shot!

The growing federal deficit = generational slavery to the national debt.
