Could anyone please assist me with this old trumpet?
I need to know what the age and what the estimated value could be?
Its an Oxford trumpet Made in England by Boosey & Hawkes Ltd   Serial number 19777
Much appreciated
Marco

Doesn't appear to be the Boosey and Hawkes sequence.  I suppose that means that Oxford had its own sequence.

I bought an older Oxford for less than $20.  Pulled a dent in the bell and sold to a beginning trumpet student for $80.  It's a lot better than the Chinese $100 trumpets, but not worth much other than as a student instrument.
