|Appraiser Comments:||Your vintage Hohner accordion was made in several club models and is circa 1930's. Antique & vintage accordions are collectible and can be found on Ebay and other auction sites, ranging from under $10.00 to upwards of 400.00. Since yours is a model 1 it has the greater value. The low appraisal here is a price I believe you could start on Ebay or sell outright as a wholesale instrument, and the high value can be used as today's fair market replacement value.|
