Valenciennes is the region in France where it was made. "Morin" may well be the maker, although I do not have a reference on that maker specifically. There were many French guilds producing arms in the mid-1800's (1860's time frame when pinfire was popular). Value is going to depend on the overall quality, amount of decoration and condition - could be anywhere from a couple of hundred to well over a thousand.
