I am thinking about listing my horn on e bay and wonder if you would know the value.  I purchased it used and have owned it for 36 years and have taken good care of it it playes very good and has only a couple small dents and the finish is not worn through anywhere.I have attached some photos  any information would be appreciated

Answer
Martin flugelhorns are quite rare. I've not seen this model, but because it is a Martin, there will be some interest.

I'm afraid that assigning a value to this horn will be difficult. It could sell for some hundreds, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it sell in the thousands. You might consider posting some pictures to Trumpet Herald forums and see if someone more knowledgable can tell you anything useful.

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.
