springfield model 1898 value?

i have a springfield model 1898 bolt action rifle.
the barrel is split and most of the foreend (97%) is gone due to the barrel split.
it has the little door in the stock but plate for the cleaning kit. it think it still has the ram rod in there, i haven`t looked for a while.

is this any good to have a stock redone and barrel put on?
can i get anything for it if i sell it?

there is a number on it = 101290

it is a US rifle as it says so on the action.
it has a little snap out door offset on the right side next to the bolt for loading. i would imagine some kind of strip that holds the shells.
what caliber is it? .30 or 30-06
everything but the barrel and stock work clean and tight.

Some good info here...Springfield model 1898 - TheFiringLine Forums

Like they say..probably a .30-40 krag. But seriously..with a split barrel and busted forend..its basically a parts gun I would imagine. Saw one on an auction site that appears all original and un-refinished which is the most important thing in old guns. They were asking $2450....no takers. Saw another that was refinished and not complete but in good working order..they wanted $750...no takers.

i used to go to shows and mostly work with browning A-5
and could read serial numbers, but now so much time has passed i can`t remember any of the stuff i used to know.
