Default Trying to identify what I've got

I will be the first to admit that I know very little about guns. I have inherited one that probably was last used in the 1940's and am hoping that someone might be able to give me a bit more info on it (so that I can figure out a ballpark value) based upon this information found on the rifle:

Winchester Repeating Arms Co. Model 89 22 short long and long rifle.
Winchester New Haven, Connecticut. Patent Pending.

Thanks for your help.

I don't know of any Winchester Model 89--Marlin made an 89 in .22, but not Winchester that I know of. However, they made a ton of after market .22s--most bolt action single shots for people like Sears, Wards, etc., so maybe it's one of those. Is it a bolt action without any magazine (single shot)?

There is a magazine and we estimate that it holds about 6 shots. Appreciate your response.

Look REALLY close at that 8 in the "89" and make sure it isn't a 6. As in
model 69. Taht would be a bolt action 22 with a 5 or 10 shot magazine.

Default Second look

Yes, it is model no. 69. Can anyone give me a general price range for this? I would say it is in good condition. We may have a buyer, but we don't want to be taken to the cleaners either.

if i remember correctly neither the 69 or 69a had serial numbers but both were produced from appx 1935-early 60's
condition 100% 425.00 98% 365.00 95% 300.00 90% 235.00 80% 150.00 70% 100.00 60% 85.00
Add 40% for Target Model.
Add 20% for grooved receiver (Model 69A only).
Add 5% for chrome plated bolt handle and trigger guard.
