The official Howard Miller website offers a search tool for looking up the suggested retail value for floor clocks according to model numbers.

    How do you estimate the value of a saxophone?

    A:

    The first step in appraising a saxophone's value is to determine the brand and model. Then, try to find out if the model is still in production. If an instrument is still in production and is in excellent condition, it is generally worth around 45 percent of the retail price. If the saxophone is vintage and in excellent condition, it may be worth much more depending on its rarity, its condition and how much demand there is for it.
