Hi,

According to the serial number your trombone was made in 1957. The model is "Director", this a student quality horn and would sell for $200-400 at auction and on the secondhand market.

Thank you,

My quick review of an online service seem to indicate that the serial number was associated to instruments from 1900/"01??
Expert:  Wayne replied 1 year ago.

Hi,

That would be true if it were "69,318" but you told me "693,180" which is 1957.

Thanks,
