The model 48, later known as the Revelation model, was one of Holton's premium trumpet lines. It was common for the US military to buy instruments for their bands, and have them engraved appropriately to reflect they were owned by the US military.

my guess would be around $100-300.... There are two on eBya right now, one listed for $400, other for $150. Neither have bids on them though.

Hope you find this helpful.
