Customer Question
I have a organ...

I have a organ that has the pedals that you pump when playing. It was given to me by my grandmother. I know that it has to be at least 90 years or older.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

It is in excellent shape. It had a top on it but I don't have it.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Not really
