What would the approximate value of an old pump organ be?

Customer Question
What would the approximate...

What would the approximate value of an old pump organ be? The keys are in perfect condition. It is appears to be walnut wood which has been restored. It has a small shelf off to each side that I am guessing held either candles or kerosene lamps. Where the sheet music sits, it lifts up and stores sheet music within. Everything works on it.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

What I am calling a shelf off to each side is round in shape. It is in immaculate condition.
