Greetings members,

I have an Accordion recently acquired that I need your expert help on identifying. I can return favor with any Billiard cues you might need to ID however I am out of my league on this instrument after combing the inter web. Had a brand badge on it at one time however seems to have disappeared but glue remains ( kind of)
Appears simple, and very old but is in presentable playing condition.

Any help would be very kind. If you have any idea of aprox value even kinder.

Thanks in advance for your time,
-Dave

La Tosca, for sure - made by Gretch, model poss Valencia. Style looks early 50s, value - not a lot unless someone knows something I don't. Even in good condition these early models unfortunately make no money. If you know what your talking about and can say it needs no work, in tune & plays well, maybe £120 /$200 on a good day?

Yes La Tosca was the name used Gretch imports, but for any other comments I would echo Thumper on this one --

Thank you @Jim.D and Soulsaver for your speedy response, your keen eyes, and excellent instrument knowledge regarding my mystery Accordion. Now, outside right white key does not completely stick but is the only one that is slow to return. Any tricks to free it up ?

Happy Holidays,
-Dave
