When I was in high school in the late 1960s, I purchased a LeBlanc Dynamic H Pete Fountain silver key articulated c#, serial number 23900, for $500.  At the time I was told it was one of 250 silver keyed built in 1968.  There were also 250 gold key Pete Fountains made that year.  I have been trying to find out the current value of the horn for insurance purposes.  I am the one and only owner and it has never been worked on.  The pads are in excellent shape and I have the original mouthpiece. It is an unbelievable instrument with full rich sound and little effort to play it.  I have no idea what it is really worth but I've been offered over $5,000 for it due to its condition and originality.  It is a prized possession and one with many fond memories of high school and college attached to it.
