    Interesting horn! I enhanced the logo a bit, which I will show below. The text I see there is:

    Made by
    Hall & Quinby
    Boston

    ...in case that helps anyone here with identification.

    It looks similar to a rotary valve cornet, made between 1870-1875:

    I'd say it's probably 1870s. Nickel silver is desirable and Hall and Quimby were a good maker. Valve trombones aren't all that desirable and it's almost certainly high pitch. I'd put the value somewhere between $500 and $1000.
