My name is***** have been dealing in and appraising Musical Instruments for over 40 years, and I can help you with this. According to the serial number your trombone was made in 1913. These were student quality instruments and not considered professional quality. Assuming that your horn is in good playable condition, this would sell for $200-300 at Auction and in a private sale.

Thank you,
