    I know this is a flute but I was wondering about origin and value? I bought this at a yard sale. It has five finger holes. Any help would be great. Thank you in advance.

      A quick check on ebay I found two similar flutes. Most call this type Pre-Columbian (Aztec, Mayan, Peruvian, etc...) Mesoamerica - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It's very hard to tell the age by pictures. Most are of modern make and rarely break the 50 dollar mark. Hope this helps. My Dad collects this type of thing, and has flutes that vary in age from a few hundred years to a couple of decades.
