Very old Toneking brass trumpet and the only other word I can

Customer Question

Very old Toneking brass trumpet and the only other word I can find on it is Bohemia?

That model was made in Czechoslovakia...what would you like to know?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
How old is it or when was it made and how much is it worth?
Expert:  Will replied 5 years ago.

Thank you...the piece is circa 1890-1915 and is of moderate quality, and the brand was only around for about 6 years. Most parts of the valve assemblies were made in Czechoslovakia but the pieces were assembled and marketed out of Germany for the most part. If complete and in average overall condition, they normally retail from $225 to $400.

What does one of these actually sell for, if it was in perfect shape or in bad shape? Basically how much could I sell it to a music or antique shop for?
Expert:  Will replied 5 years ago.
Realistically, they are not in great demand...but you should get about 40-50% of the estimated retail if you sell to a retail vendor. You might do better with a private sale on a site like Craigslist.org or eBay.com if you find the right buyer. Best, Will
