    I've never played a 22b though have heard nice things about them, mostly through reading posts on this website.
    A quick search threw up these threads which may be useful for you, since they discuss differences in 22b models over the years:

    Aside from the time your trumpet was made you would have to consider the condition it is in, and possibly the case and accessories you might be selling with it. I'm nowhere near qualified to make any value judgement on a trumpet so I won't try. Somebody else may respond here, and you could always check through historical sales on, for example, ebay to give you a feel.

    Kind regards,
