My father-in-law recently died and I'm trying to help his wife sell some of his musical instruments. This is one, in its original case. Serial number is 82618 (looks like circa 1924, correct?). Has fancy engraving, says Made by Frank Holton & Co. Elkhorn, Wis. Could you identify the model, type, etc. -- anything that will allow me to correctly list this for sale. Also, any idea of value (I know condition is important -- appears to be in good condition with some wear to the finish on the slide area). Many many thanks for any help.

Looks like very good condition... Would guess a few hundred dollars. Any engraving on the mouthpiece receiver? a number?
