I don’t know anything about accordions or old instruments as such and I recently acquired this. I’m curious to know if it would be worth selling or maybe a fun project to restore and learn to play. Please and thank you for any and all information

From your pictures, the condition of the deteriorated bellows & exterior condition will be similar to what you find internally.
When looking for replacement parts you will find most of them have been obsolete for many years.
The cost of parts & labor to put this in playable condition will FAR OUTWEIGH the value of the box when completed.
I'm afraid it's value is none and effort to restore it will be akin to "Beating A Dead Horse".
I really hope I haven't busted your bubble.

No bubbles burst here, it’s at least enough to peak my interest in accordions now. Just out of curiosity was there anything special about it back when it was made or is it pretty standard? Thank you for the help I appreciate it
