Looks like a pre-(18)88 Mauser. Some kind of a Model 71 variant. Do you have any idea what the caliber is? Most of the German infantry rifles fired 11 mm. The cartouche is Dutch. Perhaps a contract military rifle. Definitely black powder only!!!

I would say that it is an old bolt action rifle.

That is a Dutch Beaumont-Vitali, Model 1871/88. It was originally a Beaumont Model 1871 single shot built in 1875, but later converted to a repeater with the Vitali magazine system in or after 1888. The most distinguishing feature of the Beaumont rifles was the split bolt handle that contained a flat or V-type spring that drove the firing pin. Don't sell it by what I say, but my guess is the value would be around $300 or so.
