Hi, i can see potential money bags in the distance, but, i am unfarmiliar with the world of accordions and there seems to be little in the way of an online accordion community to help me (cant think why ) so i have turned to you guys! Anyway, heres the scoop. My mother’s friends’ late husband was a keen accordion player and, he had himself a Hohner Tango 1 accordion, which he brought around 50 years ago! Towards the end of his life he purchased a superior model, and in his kindness, left the older model with us. It has been sitting in our house for nearly 10 years (about 9 and a half actually), but my parents have left it up to me to find the thing a new owner. In a bit of research i conducted at a local music shop, i found a leaflet saying some Hohners could easily reach as much as 4500 pounds (i’m english by the way).
As i said, this accordion is a 50 year old Hohner Tango 1, and is in suprisingly good condition (i guess). It certainly works, without any problems and there is little damage to the wooden furniture. I am not trying to sell it to the people here, i would just really appreciate some guidance in how i could sell it, or just how much it is likely to fetch.
i appreciate any help that you may give in advance
All the best John
