    Value of Coronet

    We recently found my hubby's old Olds Coronet, he used it in the early 1960's - the serial number is 321xxx, still in the original case and in fairly good condition .....any idea on what it might be worth??

    Pictures so we can identify the model of the cornet and it is not safe to release all digits of the serial number.
    I recommend doing 321XXX.

    You could try using photobucket.

    What does it say on the bell? Ambassador by any chance? That was the one most band kids had in the 60's. Serial makes it 1959...maybe 1960. Probably has the six sided end on the receiver? Pinkie ring in a C shape?

    Check out ebay sold listings.

    Re: Value of Coronet

    A serial of 321xxx fits in for the early 60s on an Olds.
    If it's not marked Ambassador, is it marked Special, Studio, Super, Recording, Opera, or Mendez, or none of these?
    1950 Buescher model 217 Lightweight 400 Trumpet
    1910 Holton Couturier Model Cornet
    1950 Holton Model 28 Cornet
    1972 Holton Galaxy Trumpet
    1970 Conn 17A Cornet
    1948 Holton Model 79 Mellophone
    ...and a lot of woodwinds.

    If attachments continue to fight you, try matching it to the pictures in the Olds model guide at www.trumpet-history.com.

    Hi Novam,
    Welcome to TM.

    As others are indicating here, we cannot but guess without knowing the Make and Model. The attachment failed, so we have not got a clue - we are guessing at best.

    It is like asking, "My Dad left me a Ford Car with a Rego of XYX-123, what's it worth?" If you reflect on your question, I am sure you can see the gap.
    Questions:
    1..Is there a Make on the Bell (the Flared tulip part)
    2. Is it Silver, or Brass or a mixture.
    3. It is a Cornet, Not a Coronet - a Coronet is usually with diamonds, and worn by a woman on her head.
    4. Does it have a case?
    5. Does it have a mouthpiece?
    6. Do the valves go up and down freely, or do they sort or stick, or are stuck?
    7...Any dents, dings in it?

    A photo can help a lot.
    Thanks, and looking forward to helping
    Peter

    Why do I like a bell that Points UP ?
    - because the spit does not run back into my mouth!
