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.

That is a pre-Revelation TRUMPET, not a cornet. Had it been made a few years later (as a trumpet) it would be collectible (advent of models 45 and 48 Revelation design trumpets). Had it been a cornet, especially Chicago and in good condition with all slides , 150 to 300. Unfortunately, your trumpet generally goes for 75 to 125 on ebay.
Sorry. On the other hand, if its a large bore (numeral 001/2 or 1 on 2nd valve, it may interest buyers for its parts.
Best of luck,Joe
PS, a coronet is a crown whereas a cornet is a horn.

BTW...That Holton trumpet was made pre WWI, about 1913.
