I'm a newcomer to this site. And I'm seeking information. I

I recently acquired a never before played Getzen Single Valve - Bb - Obligato Bugle (probably made in the 60's but Getzen was unsure). It is in virtually Mint Condition (one small ding that could be removed) with: Case; Mouthpiece; and even keys in an unopened envelope.

I played it briefly and it sounds similar to a Piccolo Trumpet except for the one valve, of course.

I'm wondering if anyone out there knows what the value of the instrument is.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

You may have a problem finding a buyer, as from what I understand the DCI crowd is now going to conventional instruments, rather than bugles. But know you have a pretty unique item, and that is worth something to a collector. I follow ebay pretty closely, and the bugles generally go in the 75 to 150 range, depending on condition.
