Handling, exposure to sunlight (I've been told), and rust.
What I hear from the collectors, de-grease with non chlorinated brake cleaner, and immediately soak all the metal with a silicon based gun oil like CLP.
Marlin used a different color case formula than Winchester and Colt, and JMHO, the Marlin color case was the best looking of the three.
