Paging Dr Cable; single shot question

by Slow Hand ⌂ @, Indiana, Sunday, September 13, 2020, 19:41 (16 days ago)

I came into this recently on a whim. It looks to be a Ballard Sporting Model .38 rimfire. From what I can find they made about 15,000 of them starting in 1861. This one is serial numbered 851, in several places. I had thoughts of converting it to center fire, but with the early cast frame, I was talked out of it by wiser men! Would you have any opinion on its value if I were to put it up on an auction site? Bore is fairly rough, but something like this generally isn’t sold as a shooter anyways. It’s all functional and I cleaned it up a bit. It has Merwin & Bray, New York markings on it.
