I am considering selling my 1963 Holton Galaxy trumpet which is in excellent condition - no dents, valves minumal wear, wear on contact points (nickle plated - valve slides lacquered brass) plus a couple of scratches. I used horn for two years in HS and rarely since. Original case in very good condition. I am the original owner which obviously makes me kind of old. Workmanship on this horn superior to some latter day "professional" models I have purchased.

I would like to get consensus on resale value as I have seen quite a range. My horn is in better condition than the one currently posted to eBay at $1,450 which seems very high to me - not that I would turn down such an offer.

I appreciate your advice.
