No extra cost.
Now for your organ:
Old pianos and organs have no value just for being old. In other words, prospective buyers are not collecting organs; they want to be able to play them. They are not looking for furniture - they are looking for a musical instrument. Organs have parts that wear out and must be replaced, and an organ that hasn’t been regularly tuned will not hold a tuning. So, old organs are at a disadvantage in the market.
Organs are valued heavily on age after other factors like style, maker and condition. Age will tell you what kind of wear the organ would have mechanically. Even if the outside looks good the internal mechanisms are likely only in fair condition. Add to that the fact that the market in ALL organs is very soft right now, and there is not much good news for your organ.
In its present unrestored condition, the current retail (replacement or insurance) value of your Baldwin organ is approximately $750. 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 $300, depending on location and actual condition.
