From the barrel rollstamp, it appears to be a model 1894. The model marking should be on the top tang, behind the hammer. If there is a tang sight mounted there, you can remove the two screws and you will find the model rollstamped there. The model 1894 was produced from summer of 1894 to 1935, in various styles of rifles, and carbines, with many options. Calibers were .44-40, .38-40, 32-20, and .25-20. Early .25-20's were marked .25-20M (marlin) while later were regular .25-20, but the two cartridges interchange. Values of these early guns depend on the variation, condition, and special order features, so without knowing all these things, and estimate is not possible.

What does a Marlin 3840 lever action rifle look like?

You are probably refering to a CALIBER .38/40 Marlin lever action. This is just one of many calibers offered in many different models of Marlin lever action rifles. It was originally a black powder cartridge that designated a .38 caliber (usually 0.357 inch diameter) bullet loaded in a case with 40 grains (7000 grains = 1 pound) of black powder. Marlin is still in business today and with the interest in Cowboy Action Shooting Marlin and other firms are manufacturing rifles that are nearly identical in appearance to their original models. Just do a search for "Marlin Firearms Company" and go to their website.

The Model 49 was a variant of the basic Marlin pump shotgun produced on the 1889 patents. The Model 49 was made in the late 1920's and was primarily an incentive gift for stock purchasers.
