Your trumpet was most likely built in the time frame of 1947-1949. The marking on the bell of New York 67, where 67 was the old zip code for the section of New York that the factory was located (Bronx). You can contact Conn Selmer (Elkhart, IN) and if you speak nicely they can fax, mail you a copy of the shop card with additional details of your trumpet...

With regards to the value of your trumpet, it is highly dependent on the condition. Please refer to the thread in this forum on how to get some recent estimates of value of your trumpet.
