I have a Western Field XNH-480-C, which you told me is a Noble model 70 410 pump, and a Marlin model 39 .22 lever rifle. I would like to know the value of these 2 guns. Also, do you know where I could get an owners manual for the Marlin or will I have to just get a schematic like the Noble.

I think you will need some more information on the Marlin. I'm not sure how old it is but it has a hexagon barrel and it is a model 39 not 39A.

Thank you for your information on the Noble.

Old 39's are worth alot nowadays if in good condition. Marlin probably will support you with manual downloads or contacts at their website. Most mfrs that are still in business, will get you instruction manuals for their old products, cheap or free. Liability issues I guess. I don't think that the Noble is probably worth near as much as the Marlin if your Marlin is in good shape. Maybe see if there is one like it for sale on the websites for gun auctions. Like a google or yahoo search for Marlin 39. Just plain old 39A's sell at gunshows around here for 350 or more, usually, so an old one is at a premium. But condition is everything.

I looked in a 1964 gun buyers guide and the Noble 70 410 pump was selling for like 74$ then, a few dollars less than a Mossberg 500 plain vanilla gun. So it might be valued in the used Mossy price range, except for the fact it is in 410 cal, which might add value depending on locale, I guess. Some areas might pay a premium for 410 pumps and SxS shotguns, as compared to a standard 12 guage version. But I still think the Marlin is valuable if condition warrants. Even then some sellers might ask alot for a well used specimen.
