Need help pricing a Hohner accordion

Hi there!
Does anyone here know what price tag should I put on this Hohner? I think its a Verdi III m (guessing one of the Is fell off, because its a 120 bass), have no idea about the production year.

Can you tell what its worth and maybe figure out the production year?

Heres a link with some pictures(the text is in Hebrew, but pics are pics :) )


Thanks a lot!

Verdis were made from 1934 - this one has the 1940-50 grill. Value - depends on demand & condition: This is not the most sought after Hohner and this isn't the most popular Verdi design. This one looks like it needs plenty of work to make playable - £50 for salvage/project.

Well, I'm not an accordion player but it does play and all the keys and switches function. still think it's only worth £50 ... ?

I'm afraid Soulsaver's response is quite correct, as this one will need bellows tape repair. And even if brought back to shape, that sharp edged waterfall keyboard will take the skin off your fingers when playing a glissando.

If that is the extent of your description, yep I'll stick with £50, maybe £100 on a good day. You may get more, if you do, you'll have been lucky. And whoever used a scourer on the bellows corners hasn't done you any favours.
