      If you do the ebay comparison, take that with a grain of salt, because few people want to pay as much as something is worth when buying off ebay. I'd get a few estimates from dealers, and be sure to have pictures for insurance reasons.

        Well, ebay is a pretty good indication of market value. The horn might book for $1500, but depending on the time of year, the availability, and other factors, it could sell for $1000, or if it happens to be in excellent shape, and the only one available at the time, it could go for $2000!
