1878 Springfield trapdoor

A good friend recently lost her husband who owned an 1878 Springfield trapdoor. She has no idea what it is worth, if anything, and neither do I, but knowing little about collectables, would not like to see her get less than the rifle is worth. The rifle has the stamped U.S. Springfield on the left side of the receiver aft of the hammer,an eagle stamp is above the U.S Springfield stamp, Ser.No. 463373 or maybe 463371, the last three is faded or worn.I would estimate the rifle is N.R.A. Good or maybe better. Wood is good with several stamps, some of which are clear. Little or no rust, bore seems good, a bayonet is also available. I am not a collector but the rifle seems to be more than junk and she could use the money. HELP!
