Googled it and found it unlikely to be unique ... looks to be 70 or more years old.

Although they are wonderful musical instruments accordions are complicated machines, Unlike violins, the most valuable ones are new, not old.

Very very few accordions have any value other than as playable instruments. The problem is that accordions are complicated with a lot of parts which deteriorate over time. The value of an old accordion is therefore what it would be worth in excellent condition as an instrument to play, minus the cost of the work needed to put it into excellent condition.

If you sign on to Ebay you can search for Sold listings and see what older accordions actually sold for.

Lots more info

One thing in favour of yours is that it is a Chromatic Button Accordion or Continental Chromatic Accordion there are not as many of these around as there are piano accordions.

This was built in Klingenthal germany most likely right after WW2. Not worth much till it is rebuilt.
