I have a gemeinhardt flute and I looked up the cerial number on the website and it seems like it is a 1976-1977 flute. I was wondering how much it would be worth

Hi,
There is a serial number and a model number. (Like 2SP) What is your model number?
Generally, a Gemeinhardt flute has been considered a decent enough student flute
throughout the years but if it's 40 years old then it may not be worth very much.
If you are trying to sell it in the states then if it doesn't look like it's complete junk
then ask for $100-150 and see how many inquiries that you get.

If the pads need replacing, it may cost more to have a repair person do an overhaul than
what you'd get in selling it. This would be especially true if the finish were bad and it has plenty of dents.

Most people who want to know the value of an instrument are interested in maybe selling it.
I would still stand by what I wrote first.
The issue is that it's a basic student flute and you can get what someone is willing to pay.
You don't have a flute that is a collector's item nor is it one in high demand because of quality.
Condition is important and if it has not been repaired in many years then the cost of new pads and an ovrhaul would
not be worth the instrument's value unless you were going to actually play it.
