Customer Question

i have an old accordion, Medalist is written in big letters, made in germany in small letters. it seems to be in good shape. can you direct me to somewhere to find out if this is a collectors item or not? it was bought by a friend at an estate sale about 17 years ago and given to my wife. my wife has since died and i don't know what to do with it.

Hi,

This is circa 1930s made by Hohner. This would sell for $100-200 at auction. Here is one that is very similar with another name.
