On Training Wheels
I have this bike that I bought from someone else in hopes to restore it as best as possible, but im really having a hard time figuring out the Year it was made and if it is actually a Marlin Firearms Co. Bicycle or if the plate on it isnt original.

The headbadge is probably original. Marlin sold Westfield built bikes in 1937, as indicated in the two ads I posted. Your frame is Westfield built and has a 1937 serial number from June 37.

Looks like yours was originally blue and is likely a Model 378L unequipped bike. The fenders look original and don’t appear to have the holes for a light and wiring that the deluxe models had.

And the Marlin looks like a 26" balloon tire bicycle; (not the same frame as that other Westfield-built 28" ladies bicycle, from about 10 years earlier).
