The organ has never been restored since I've owned it. It's previous history is unknown.
Expert:  Tyler, MM, AAGO replied 4 months ago.

Thanks for the photos and information. This is a nice looking organ that appears to be in good cosmetic condition. The market for old pump organs is quite small and there are few collectors out there. While this has some lovely decorative embellishments, the the one keyboard design is pretty standard. In good cosmetic and working condition, based on the market, I would recommend a selling range of $300-$500. Best wishes!
Please select a positive rating--doing so helps me out a lot. Thanks!
