I am in possession of a coronet ser. #14087 . On the bell it says "new production made by Frank Holton & Co , Chicago. It was purchased by my Great Grandmother for my Grandfather in 1910 or 1911 to play in his high school band. I inherated it and served me well through high school as well. It still in the original case and I have all the slides, lyre, and mouth pieces for it.
I was wanting more info on it ,if you had it , and possibly how much it is worth now.
Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the post. I would think it should "New Proportion", and based upon the serial number was mfg. in 1911-1912 timeframe in Chicago.

Here's a vintage ad of this instrument from the same timeframe.
