If it was in new condition, it could be worth $200+, but since it's already worn, it may be worth only half as much (or possibly even less). As a collectable, re-finished/restored is equal to worn-out (no ORIGINAL finish remaining), so you won't be doing any monetary damage to it. I'd suggest just cleaning the wood with a good furniture cleaner and the metal with gun oil $ brass wool. Whatever you do, don't attempt to have it hot-blued or you may find yourself with two single barrels. (You probably can't do that yourself anyway and a competent gunsmith should know better.)

The St. Louis Arms Company was a trade name used by the H&D Folsom company of New York on low cost shotguns they sold to the Shapleigh Hardware Company of St. Louis in the late 19th and early 20th century, up until about the Second World War. The value is not high.
