How old is a Marlin lever action 38-w rifle with the serial 21171 and is there a value range?

the serial number 21171 would be from late 1888, the 38W stands for 38winchester also known as a 38-40 caliber. this gun will be either a late model 1888 marlin with top shell ejection, or a very early 1889 model with side ejection, also the model 1889 would be marked marlin safety on top of the reciever. in either case this is a antique black powder cartridge firearm and should not be shot with modern smokeless powder ammo, due do stronger ammo pressures and weaker steel that was used in the guns of this period.
