I play one on T.V...
Conn double bell euphoniums with 5 valves generally bring the highest prices on auction sites.
4 valves...less. not Conn...less.
Yours? Maybe $1500 - $2000, depending on condition of finish and amount of valve wear.
York was in Grand Rapids, Michigan and closed up decades ago. Trumpet, trombone, French horn, and baritone players aren't really excited about York instuments. A few of the York contrabass tubas seem to be nice.
