    It's definitely an Ideal No. 44, and Flayderman's value range for that model in rimfire calibers is $350 - $900 (the 44 was also made in centerfire calibers).

    Sorry for first misidentifying it as a Favorite model, but except for size and the rifle style metal butt plate they look identical when there's nothing to show scale.

    A No. 44 that nice is far more scarce than a Favorite, and if you plan to sell I'd suggest one of the larger gun auction houses, such as Rock Island Auctions.

    So this is a rimfire? How do you tell the difference?

    Nice old advertisement.

    In your Little Scout post you stated 'I know very little about guns' so to explain:

    A rimfire gun uses a cartridge with priming compound that ignites the powder in the rim of the shell, and the firing pin is off centered. Cartridges for centerfire guns have a primer in the center of the shell head.

    The difference in barrel lengths listed in the adv. would be to compensate for weight difference, as the rimfire cartridges had a smaller bore then the larger centerfire cartridges and thus would weigh a bit more if equal length.
