Martin BBb's can be very good horns, especially the BBb's made for the government (Navy Band?) in the '60s == those horns are large bore 4 vavle BBb's that look a whole lot like Conns, including the short action valves. I believe they were made by Conn for Martin under contract. Value is hard, but should be about the same as the equivalent Conn: for a good condition 4 valve horn $1500-2500.
