I have a Bach Stradivarius that I can't find the serial number (year mfg.) for. I am selling the item and are trying to find the year it was made for the approxamate value. The horn was made in Mt. Vernon, serial number 19206. If anyone knows anything about this model your info is greatly appreciated.

It would have most likely been made in late 1959.

If there is no marking on the bell, it would have been a 37 bell. This trumpet was made a few years before the sale of Vincent Bach Corp. to Selmer in October 1961. With regards to value, read the first thread in this forum on how to do completed sales on eBay for other examples. I would guess-estimate around $1500, and as high as $2000 which is highly dependent on the condition.
