Frontalini accordion value?
#1
Before I put it on eBay I need to figure out what it’s worth. 

eBay values on similar-looking frontalini models seem between £50 and £200, so a bit confused, and really don’t know the accordion market.  

48 bass. No treble register buttons. 

It’s not in great condition but if there were any value to it I’d get it fixed up before sale. 

Any ideas as to the value?

Thanks

I am not understanding... are you looking to sell it, get info or what? If it's for sale, kindly delete and post in the for sale section please. Smile

As far as value, just looking at the pic from the outside does little, but it does look really run down and the bellows look quite ragged, but it is the inside that decide if the big costs to repair happen. Tuning, waxing and valves are the most expensive to have done and especially the tuning and waxing, which requires special equipment, knowledge and lots of time.

My very unprofessional opinion is that this one is a lot closer to £50 than £200, possibly even less... unless it is a project for yourself, it is not worth doing for resale as you never could get back the time/money invested.

Sounds about right. Just wanted to make sure I wasn’t giving it away!

Lots of similar accordions at sale rooms the length and breadth of the country.   Generally estimates are £30-50.
