Re: 1894 U.S. Springfield Armory-30-40 Krag I assume but need help
It is a Model 1892, made in 1894, the 4900th made. While the model was designated 1892, production did not start until the beginning of 1894. At that time, the decision was to mark the year of manufacture on the receiver, not the model year. That was changed, but not until 1896, so there are no Model 1892 rifles marked as Model 1892.
If that rifle were in better condition, it would probably bring a fair amount of money, but to you I am sure the value as an heirloom is many times any pure monetary value.
