Ballards may be weaker,
but they sure are neater!

That's an unusual Ballard configuration, as it all appears to be a #4 Perfection, except for the small Swiss buttplate. It appears to be a 2 line address, which usually is forged, but would advise checking prior to purchase. Since it's local, I'd ask the seller if you can remove the lever screw and drop the breech block. If it's solid in the receiver below the barrel, then it is forged. I'd also ask to remove the buttplate and check to see if it's serial numbered to the gun.
If it's forged and the serial numbers match, it's unusual enough to get a bit more than an equal #4 with crescent buttplate. If the bore is good, and it's matching, I'd say it's a $1500-$1700 gun. If the buttplate doesn't match, I'd subtract 15% from that. If it's a cast action, I wouldn't go more than probably $600.
Don't want to hash the "is it safe" thing again. If proper care is taken when loading, and light loads used, even a cast action in .38-55 can be safely fired.
