    I worked at GM and some times thing like that are missed the stamp machine might have gone down or stopped.
    I would call Marlin with the serial number. I'm willing to bet that yours is not the only one.

    I've heard several times about the stamp being missing on Marlins. I have one that you can make out only half of the 'M'.
