Here are, hopefully, some photos of myDeFord flute, #2762, to aid you in making an accurate resale valuation. If anything else shows up, my younger brother the Prankster is to blame!

Hey, thanks for getting back to me with that information.

I did some digging this afternoon, I was able to find Deford silverplated Flutes bringing anywhere from 30-130USD. The condition is massive when it comes to the resale value of these vintage flutes. In fair to good shape you would be looking at an auction value on eBay of between 35-55USD. I would advise starting out a little higher closer to 80-100USD and seeing if you can get any offers on the flute. You have the original case, which is a benefit in the resale value, that may get you a few more looks.

I hope this information was helpful to you today.

Best of luck with your vintage Flute.

Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.

Thank You,
