Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.

Colombo & Sons was founded in San Francisco in 1927 by Colombo Piatanesi and his two sons, Gary and Faust. From the late 1930s, they imported the less expensive models from the Piatanesi family in Italy. In 1954 production in the USA stopped and all accordions were imported from Italy.

If your accordion is in excellent condition, both cosmetically and functionally, its current retail (replacement or insurance) value is approximately $1,500. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of approximately 40% of the retail amount, or $600.

I hope this answer has been helpful to you.

If you have any further questions or problems concerning this answer, please let me know.

If you would like to work with me on further questions you might have, it would be a pleasure to work with you again. All you have to do is put my name (Judith) at the beginning of your question.
