    Depending upon it's condition, maybe $200-$300. Kay instruments (especially some of the bass fiddles and old guitars) are definitely collectible. The look of the case seems to date it sometime in the 50's. But, don't take my word for it... do a little research and see what you find.

    My father (86 years old) has an old mandolin that we're trying to find the value of. Here's the details:
    On the inside it says: GUANANTEED PERFECT SCALE; VICTORIA; BEST AMERICAN MAKE; B. & J. NEW YORK
    It is a flat back with 8 strings.
    The only thing I have been able to find out about B & J is that it stands for Buegeleisen & Jacobson, New York

    Thanks,

    Pat
