Answer
Hello Debbie,
These clarinets can be of intermediate standard if in new /overhauled condition and well regulated...It is not a 'mainstream' brand [BUFFET/LEBLANC/SELMER/EATON/ROSSI] so would not be worth as much as these...It is also around 50 years old,so would have lots of competition on EBAY...I  think it would be worth around 4400-500. in todays' market....Cheers   JACK
