how much this instrument value????

Answer
Even the rarest and best conditioned horns of this ilk and vintage can be gotten for under $800.  If yours is scratched, dinged, or de-lacquered in any way, it's worth lots less.  Most run of the mill Conn's of this era can be gotten for under $400 and some go as low as $50 to $100 US.

Take a look at this 'rare' silver lacquer specimen in fantastic condition - and note the asking price:
