I have an M.Hohner accordion number 85280 patent October

Customer Question

I have an M.Hohner accordion number 85280 patent October 6,1931. Trying to see what it's worth and to sell. I have the original case too. Purple felt inside. Good condition the leather handle is broke on one side of case
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Musical Instrument Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: This does still play nothing else is wrong with it.

Is there a dealer in my home state that might be interested
Expert:  Nora replied 1 month ago.


Where are you located? In general, I do not recommend offering items to a dealer as they will offer you 10% - 30% of the lowest perceived value of the item. The best way to sell would be through Ebay, as it is where the most potential buyers would first got to look when searching for this type of accordion.
