The bore is shiny with no deposits or marks. The rifling is good with very little wear.

For any BP rifle, I'd call that excellent, not good.

I'm in agreement with Clarence.

On the estimated price of such a piece, especially with the bore in excellent condition and provided it functions properly in a safe manner, I would use two guides provided I was interested in buying it, and they are: 1) For a low estimation, Flayderman's, and 2) The Standard Catalog of Firearms, if it was for sale and I definitely wanted the rifle, and was also convinced that it was all original...aside from any minor replacement parts.  

Good luck, AG.

Late to this thread but interesting. I have a SCR made in 1897 in 38-55 that I bought at a local gun show 20 odd years ago. I has no markings on the tang. I was told by the seller that it was rebarreled, but that was all. I have since been told it was reblued. Would refinishing remove the markings on the tang? At the time I bought it I didn't know squat about 94's and after reading thru this forum I know I still don't know squat about them, lol.

Yes, the refinishing process could have removed the factory marking on the upper tang, especially if the person doing it was heavy handed with the buffing wheel.
