Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Values for large instruments, particularly organs, are quite low these days.

In excellent working condition, this organ would be valued at around $1,500.00.

In non-working condition, it would not typically sell for more than $200 or $300.

Please let me know how I can help further.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
