    How antique is it? Best place to check are ebay current and , thru advanced search, completed listings for them. I looked and all but one sold for less than $75 (6) and one Cleveland Superior model for $199.99 , one bid, in pristine condition. There should be some currently listed.

    Re: CLEVELAND KING Antique Cornet

    Have you played it? I have one that is a very good playing instrument, much better than the student line tag would indicate. It does OK with my usual choice of mouthpieces, but just comes alive with a Bach 1 that came with it. This is one that really needs that great big cup to allow the resonance to really get going, and sounds pinched with a small diameter mouthpiece.

    I paid about 40 for mine, with several mutes including an aluminum bubble mute at alone was worth what I paid.
