Will need far more information than that. There were several different models of the single shot Ballard rifle produced in that caliber.
Does it have a straight grip stock or a pistol grip stock? Is the barrel round, half octagon or full octagon? Single trigger or a double set trigger?
Is the stock and forearm checkered? Is the receiver marked J. M. Marlin or Marlin Fire-Arms Company? Does it have a steel crescent butt plate or a flat, shotgun style butt plate or a Swiss style butt plate? What type of sights does it have?
Looking forward to hearing back from you........
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there be no warning shot!

The growing federal deficit = generational slavery to the national debt.

If the world was wouldn't be.
