I sold an unfired Ultra Hi/Miroku .45 Kentucky rifle last year for $149 shipped and it took a long time to sell it even though it was in mint condition. That translates to about $125 before shipping. And I advertised it on several traditional BP forums.
I saw 2 of the same models that I had for sale on Gunbroker in well used condition and surprisingly 1 ended up selling for about $160.
Your gun is more fancy with it's gold and black ornamentation but then it's also in used condition. I would think that it's maximum value is around $125 - $150 more or less depending on the selling venue.
The Miroku's just don't have that much of a following even though they are accurate shooting guns.
I also had a once fired Miroku .45 Kentucky pistol in the white with the same exact lock that the Ultra High Kentucky rifle had and that sold for about $50 or $60 shipped. The hammer didn't line up perfectly but it lined up well enough to fire every time. But unlike the rifle the trigger letoff was very heavy. Of course every seller sets their price. But if I could have received much more for either of them I would have. The quality of some of the older models just aren't always as good or as desirable as some of the American or Italian makes are, especially the newer ones.
I did once see a Miroku flintlock rifle on consignment in a local gunshop in the $200 range with the added selling fee. I don't know if it sold or was returned to the owner.
The pictures that I posted on my old ad have been deleted, but someone did ask about parts for it which just aren't readily available.

looks like my e-mail didn't make it...I'm offering a steel frame .36 Navy by Lyman as a trade.
