King Super 20 Silver Sonic

I am looking for a value on a King Super 20 Silver Sonic an 534776.  The engraving on the bell says East Lake Ohio.we have not found any markings on the neck.  The tube of the horn is gold as is the inside of the bell. No gold on the outside of the bell. The horn is in perfect working order.  Looking to sell this horn.
Are there more markings to be found?
Does this horn have any rare attributes?

Thanks in advance for any help.

    It's from 1977-78 per the serial number, well past the prime years for Super 20s.  It's the earlier Cleveland ones that are sought after.  Figure on a range somewhere between $1000 to $1500 for a private sale price in top condition.  By your description the bell and neck are silver plated rather than sterling so it's not a Silver Sonic.
