Vintage King

I have a trumpet, but I can't find any info on it.?

The trumpet in question is engraved on the bell with "Toreador" and "Made By The HN White Co, Cleveland, Ohio", along with a very nice decorative engraving. It seems these trumpets are very sought after, but I have no idea of knowing who to talk to about a pricing!
Seriel number is c-38497

The Toreador was a student model that H.N. White offered beginning around 1936 in its Cleveland line (check out this old ad at http://www.hnwhite.com/King/Cleveland%20american%20standard/1940%20Toreador%20Trumpet%20Cleveland.jpg ); it may be a fine horn from its time, but it wasn't the best that H. N. White offered- that would be a King.Here's a link to a Toreador for sale: http://quality-brass.com/webstore/googlefiles/345.html
I don't know their trumpets, but if they're at all comparable to the saxophones, the Cleveland models are very well built and to wit are a poor man's answer to a King (I do know that the vintage King trumpets are indeed sought after by many as are the saxophones; I could own a fleet of Cleveland saxophones for the cost of one Super 20). Your best market for this horn is someone who plays a lot who wants a horn that will stay in his/her hands longer between trips to the shop. I love my early 60's Eastlake Cleveland Tenor for that reason; cats laugh when they first see the nickel silver keys (dead giveaway that it's a student horn) but the laughter stops when they hear the sound pouring out the bell.
