Question
Blessing Trumpet
Blessing Trumpet  
Hello, I bought this trumpet from a garage sale and was wondering if you could provide more information, vintge, approx value? It says Blessing USA on the horn. Number on the side says E16672. Thank you, Richard

Answer
The serial number lists for Blessing do not include the letter prefix so it's only a guess that this horn was built in the late 1980s. Value is not bad, since Blessing is a good brand, but is not a collector. A good ballpark value is $300 give or take $100.

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.
