Have an old 1920-30's Frank Holton Trumpet, serial number 86359.
How can I find out the age?

I would estimate between 1929 and 1930.

What unique markings are on the bell or lead pipe?

Thank you for the info.
I did find another marking "Pat. Oct 21,1924" on the lead pipe but nothing on the bell.

It's hard to say which model you have. You might want to look at this reference page, and see if you find a similar model.
