I'm wondering if that's an old "gallery" gun that was used in a carnival. Maybe the "8" etching on the grip cap means it was gun #8? That would also explain the well worn finish.
Back when I was young every carnival had a shooting gallery and they all used pumps chambered in .22 short.
Can't help you on what it's value is other than all the old pump .22's, and especially Winchesters, command high prices.
