Hello,

I have found one on Ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/1893-COLUMBIAN-EXPO-VALVE-TROMBONE-J-W-PEPPER-WORLDS-F-/220679164011 the current bid is $158.00 With musical instruments the problem is you usually need a musician who is also a collector. This is a cross collectable as it is related to the Worlds fair. Joan
