Stephen Chambers Posted June 24, 2009 Share Posted June 24, 2009 (edited) This is designed for single reeds, like a concertina (no tremolo effect). That would be typical both of early accordions, and of later cheap models. What could be its real worth ? You're not talking "big bucks" I'm afraid - in fact, if I'd seen it on eBay myself, I'd probably have bid around $150 on it, though I'd have been hoping to get it for a lot less. The thing is, these early instruments don't have "finite" values, and there's no Blue Book Guide... It's like the time I left a bid of $1,000.00 on a very early harmonica on eBay (see photos on this page), but it didn't fit in with the "accepted history" and none of the big harmonica collectors had a clue about it (in fact the underbidder emailed me afterwards, to ask what was it), so I was very happy to get it for only $38.00 - but that was something I knew was historically important, and that I "had to have" for my collection.
