Olds Trumpets and Cornets on eBay July-August 2000
Below is a summary of eBay closing prices for Olds cornets and trumpets during five weeks in July/August 2000. Some rounding has been done and some horns have been excluded
due to damage etc. For the most part, the only horns considered below are those for which pictures remain online after the auction closed. In a few cases where exceptionally
good descriptions are available the horn was included despite no picture being available.
|Super cornet|| ||228|| ||1|
|Super Star trumpet|| ||255|| ||2|
|Opera|| ||819|| ||1||Reserve not met|
|Mendez||500||840||1229||4||Silver prices much higher|
|Custom trumpet|| ||475|| ||1|
|The Olds cornet|| ||142|| ||1|
|The Olds trumpet||263||335||407||2|
Observations: There is quite a bit of variability in the prices which cannot be fully explained by the
condition. Some nice horns go unnoticed while other horns stir up bidding wars. Certainly the Ambassador
prices are often great bargains, considering how well these horns play.
I've been collecting a few extra pieces of information, including an attempt at assessing the condition
of the horns. However I haven't collected enough examples to enable meaningful analysis of smaller
breakdowns (ie price of excellent condition Ambassador trumpets). Given the time-consuming nature of
this endeavor, this may be as far as I take the effort for now. Of course if you want to volunteer to
take things further, feel free to email me ;->
