What is a century old King trumpet worth?

I have the opportunity to buy an H.N. White King "master model" trumpet for $600. It has a silver finish, and is cosmetically perfect. The serial number of 15,349 should date it between 1905-1910. I have not tried it yet, but assuming it is in good playing order is $600 a good buy? How do King trumpets compare to others?

Thanks, Patrick.

I cannot speak with any authority about the horn's monetary value or reputation among trumpeters, but there is a discrepancy borne out by the H.N. White archives: your serial number is from the production run between 1905-1910 as you state, but per this link http://www.hnwhite.com/Trumpet%20Page.htm#Master it cannot be a "Master model" because that did not go into production until 1916. It could be a "Small Bore model" according to the same link- that model became the later known as the "Master model".
I've not known many trumpet player who played King trumpets of that vintage, but I have heard more than one King trumpet from the '50's and '60's, most notably the "Silver Flair" which is made in conventional and flared bell (a la Dizzy Gillespie) models with a bore of .462". As a saxophonist myself, I know I have dug the sound that came out of these, but I have no way of knowing to what degree I'm digging the horn or the skills of the one playing it.
