Why?
Do you own one that you want to know more about?
Are you looking at buying one?
What caliber.
With out this information all I could do is serve you platitudes and whatever a web search tells.
OR
It's a short version of a 1983 marlin rifle
A short rifled version of the 1893 Musket

It sounds like a beuatiful, expensive, well loved and cared for firearm/ art piece! .38-55 is an old caliber that was dead and obsolete until cowboy action shooting brought it back. You can now buy factory loaded cartridges for it. Here are a few links on it.
