Why is Checkering on older guns?

So much more visable and better looking? I got my .444 Marlin marlin out today which has a walnut stock and wiped it down. I also have a older Model 39 30-30 with a walnut stock, and I noticed compared to all of my other Marlin lever guns the older one had much better looking checkering. My Model 336 is Marlins top grade rifle and the checkering is barely noticable. I have noticed the same on my Remington Model 700 BDL's, I have an older on chambered for the .270 and the checkering looks better on it than on my newer Models. Whats done differently on todays Models? Can you do anything to improve or make the checkering more noticable?
