Question
I HAVE ONE TRUMPET KING - #4051-S- THE KING MADE BY H.N.WHITE CLEVELAND OHIO /MAKE IN YEAR 1893 IS WORKING PERFET

Answer
It's nearly impossible to say without actually trying to sell it and seeing the condition. If it's truly that old, its value as a playable instrument is not high. Assuming that it's in average condition for that age, I would expect it to sell for a few hundred dollars at best, if you can find a HN White enthusiast willing to buy it.
