I have aquired a Frank Holton Cornet
It has the serial number 20737
And has" Made By Frank Holton & Co.-Chicago"
On the bell with fancy flowers on it
One the tubes it has the Union Label
I am curious as to when it was made and the value
and might take some serious offers
It is in very good condition -has the case with all accessories.
The case does have some wearing but I would say in very good condition
also--For its age.

Thanks for posting. Most likely it was mfg. in 1912-1913 time period. Look at the following link, and let us know what model it most likely resembles. Perhaps the New Proportion model?

Let us know... With respect to value, there is a wide variety of values based upon condition. But would guess around $500, but is highly dependent on the collector, and the condition it is in... Also you might want to search completed auctions on eBay for similar model Holton cornets from this timer period...
