As much as I love my top of the line Conn trumpet and cornet, I 'think' that I would select the Selmer. If you have the option of trying out both of these, do so, with an experienced trumpet player to listen to you on each horn and for that other trumpet player to play each of them for your listening judgement. My problem with the pictured Conn is that no model name or number is shown.
York Wizard by Couturier cornet
York Master Model trumpet
York Elite trumpet
York Airflow cornet
Conn Concert Grand Cornet
King Liberty trumpet
Reynolds Professional cornet
Bohm & Meinl professional trumpet
Conn New World Symphony trumpet
Olds Special cornet Los Angeles
B&H Sovereign cornet
G.R.Band Instr. cornet
Getzen Super Deluxe trumpet and cornet
Getzen Deluxe trumpet and cornet
Many others no room to list
Why limit yourself to those 3 trumpets? FWIW I would stay away from the Berkeley. Look around more and if possible play before you pay.
The Selmer is actually a C trumpet with an inserted extension on the tuning slide to convert it to Bb.
While its quality may be the best of the 3, it's not really designed to be a Bb instrument. You may be better off with the Conn.
Good point, Schwab Another good buy from the same shop seems to be: Trompet getzen 300 - Te koop op 2dehands.be What worries me it is that the seller included just one photo. But I guess that you can ask by email for another one and more info.
Though this is rather for the classified section I can offer you a NEW Schagerl Academica 420L trumpet which is IMO comparable to the getzen 300 series trumpets for 415 Euros+shipping. if interested please PM me. That's a little above your budget but worth the price. http://www.schagerl.pl/images/academica/trabki/420l.jpg this is a atock photo, but if you need a can take some pictures of the trumpet and its case.

Thanks for the offer, but I can't afford it :(
Regarding the other ad you posted, that's not the same seller.
The Flemish speak Dutch, don't you learn that at school in Bulgaria?
