Re: 1952 marlin 336 sc 32 special value?
The Marlin 336 doesn't hold an extremely high value. A few factors will either bump it up or down from the $500 mark.
You got factors like RC or SC? The SC model is more desire able than the RC
Being that it isn't a scarce caliber like 44mag, 375win, or other short ran oddballs, the value bump for being a rare chamber is null.
Another factor is standard rifling or microgroove. I would say your rifle is standard rifling, which is more desirable IMHO.
Finally, condition. Being yours is a used rifle with signs of wear, it varies. Worn bluing is better off than pitting. Wood is better off nicked/scratched than chipped. Finnish is better dull than missing.
Next is hardware, Scope? Mounts?
I would, without looking at your rifle say its value lies in the realm of around $450. Moving up to around $550 if a good quality scope is mounted similar to a vintage Redfield or fixed Leopold.
