I have 2 accordions that I need to have valued as part of an estate I'm handling for a dear friend.
The big one does not have any manufacturer listed.  All that I can find on it is "Made in Italy" and "B10298".  It is in "Like New" condition.  All the buttons work and the bellows are excellent.
The other is a little Hohner unit.  The tag says "Italian Accordion MFG CO" and on the other side says "Made by M.Hohner - Germany".  This one is also in excellent condition.
Any help or leads are really appreciated!

The big one is ancient and has to be close to 80 yrs old. Regardless of it`s excellent appearance and even if it seems to be in working order I`d bet the leather valves are dried up and the reed wax in brittle condition.
I usually always pass on these accordions since they aren`t worth the time and cost of materials to restore them.
I have on occasion paid as much as $50 though for similar accordions if and when I need parts , a bellows or spare reeds.
The small one I cannot comment on since I don`t know of any market for them other than maybe a coffee table item / conversation piece.
