Topic: value of Polisi #1 bocal

I found this in a case belonging to my father. I would be interested in selling it but I don't know what it is worth. Can someone enlighten me?

Re: value of Polisi #1 bocal

I have a Polisi bocal (from my first bassoon- a Polisi Concert Model) and it is great for screech playing.  It is probably worth $100 at most.

Re: value of Polisi #1 bocal

Some of the very early Polisi bocal were supposedly excellent.
I played a Polisi (new) 1963-70.
I do not know what is considered very early (1960?).
Apparently those early ones had a great high register response (Is this what Mark meant be "screech"?
$$ value?  I have no idea.
