Neat looking rifle...these are nice rifles and actions....Many were made , for both the US and over seas markets.
As for worth :
Bore condition...
Any unit , "US" or Police markings...?
If its been "over cleaned" or has newer made replacement parts...
If its "put together" gun , made from surplus parts , by say a company like Bannerman's or some other turn of the century gun parts company...
What it is worth in one part of the country , may be vastly different in another part...or even time frame of when you go to sell it....gun guys can be fickle that way...
What it is worth at a gun show that caters to the Cowboy Action Crowd will be different that a when it is at a show that has more modern rifles...

I'd guess at $800 on up....Note I said guess....Not for sure and there are lots of variables and hazards at getting a "worth value" with just online pictures and not actually seeing the gun.

Given bolt configurations, caliber, bbl band, butt, sight, it sure looks like a New York Militia contract rifle. The trigger guard usually has provision for, or actually includes, a steel sling loop which yours appears not to have.

Brief description:
NEW YORK STATE REMINGTON ROLLING BLOCK MILITIA RIFLE — Horse Soldier

Given the extremely weak action and the old, stale iron frame, value is minimal. I feel so bad for you that I'd give you $150 for it. (More than most local gun shops.)

Those all sold for over $1200 so I think $150 is far too low. I would second Andy’s $800 estimate. Right now gun sales are soft so unless a collector wants this specific model it would take awhile to sell.
