Trumpet/Recently acquired trumpet

Question
I have a Roth horn with the engraving made by Roth-Reynolds in Ohio and all that jazz but I was wondering if it is worth anything and who I would sell it to.  Serial # 73234.  Like new condition, from the mid 1950's.

Answer
It's worth a couple of hundred dollars, most likely. Your best bet for getting a good price is to sell on ebay with a lot of very good, crisp, sharp pictures. A couple of blurry phone snaps won't cut it.

You could also consider donating it to a local school and taking a tax deduction.

I can answer your questions about Buescher trumpets and cornets. I have been playing Buescher for 35 years and collecting for 7.

Experience

I first started playing my grandfather's Buescher 400 trumpet in 1975. Since then I have done a lot of research, including original catalogs and advertisements that I own, correspondence with other Buescher owners, and obtaining my own Buescher collection, including six trumpets and three cornets.

Education/Credentials
I am a technical writer with 15 years experience. I have also been playing trumpet since 1975 and collecting Buescher for the past 7 years.
