    I am the owner of a 1962 Bach Stradivarius, ML, s/n 22879, one of the last built at the Mt Vernon factory I believe. I am the original owner, and I believe it is in mint condition. I got it when I started 5th grade band, back in the day….my question is:

    we changed homeowner’s ins company and I had never thought about specifically insuring my horn but considering the age and quality of horn, I would like to include it on my homeowner’s ins…so I was hoping I could find an approx. value range that I could use to include on my ins. any ideas on appraised value??

      I would do an advanced search on eBay, find some completed auctions of similar aged, condition Bach Strad. trumpet. I’ve seen similar go from $1000 to $2000, but is highly dependent on condition…
