I bet somebody here would be able to help you out. In the meantime, here is a website with a list of antique firearms appraisers.
A lot of the appraisers out there can do an appraisal based on you sending them some money and a bunch of pictures.
Antique Gun Resources - Goodman Wesson & Associates - Antique Gun & Firearm Appraisal

BTW Welcome to the forum. If you get a moment post in the introductions thread. You might get more response after you introduce yourself to the fine men and women of this site!

The fact that it says "36 Caliber" indicates its likely a replica. Caliber designations weren't used on original blackpowder.

Incidentally, advertising of the day called .44 Caliber guns "Of Army caliber" and .36 Caliber guns "Of Navy caliber."

The lack of wood grips doesn't really indicate age, rodents eat wood grips pretty quickly, for the salt left from the user's hands.
