I have no idea about flutes, so please forgive a stupid question. A relative recently passed and we found this flute in her basement. She didn't play the flute, so I don't know why she had it or where it came from. It's a Selmer with serial number 4527. The mouthpiece is marked Sterling Silver. The main body is marked Selmer USA with '4527' engraved at the other end.
So my question is, obviously, is this flute worth anything? Is it a good model? Should we add it to the garage sale? Is it a good enough flute that we should take it to a dealer so someone who can appreciate it can own it?
Please let me know, and thank you in advance for your advice and opinions. This has been a rough time for us, and many people have swooped in trying to get the estate for a steal. We are trying to get as much for the kids as possible, so your help is appreciated.
