As I said, I know this isn't a guitar, though, I couldn't find a place for other instruments. I don't know much about this piece, though, it is just.. Amazing. The detail of this accordion is outstanding. There are what appear to be diamond (possibly quartz I think). We've a tester, though we haven't used it yet. Only test that has been done is the ole' glass scratch.
I haven't been able to find too much about this, some of the contacts I had made told me that I should send it somewhere to find out. Well nonetheless, it is a wonder piece. Found in the attic of an old pole barn too.

    Hello Https3x,
    While I am not an expert on accordions I have managed to pick up and sell quite a few. Yours is beautiful and the diamonds should be real. The fact that it is a professional model helps more. It appears that it needs more work then just the billows!
    The worse thing about an accordion is it's weight! With that in mind I would look for a local professional, of course, with the web everyone is local! You might want to look at Accordionist.org they have a great forum with plenty of info. If you are selling it as it keeping in mind that it is a small market I would suggest you ask one or two that sell outside of the US. I have used Main Squeeze Accordions in NYC (it's local to me and they have international clientele) I have never dealt with them but I heard Castiglione Accordions is reputable.
    I would send an email with pictures to at least both and see what they say. If you have a "Polish Town' in or around your area that might be a good place to look as well.
    They are not inexpensive to ship or fix! I had one that was worth quite a bit ... but the repairs were expensive as well. I donated it to a music conservatory and took the write off ... when it works for everybody it's the right thing to do :-)
    I wish you the best with your accordion and all your future finds.
    Lauren

    Thank you very much Lauren. It is a very hefty accordion, like you said. I will most definitely send off a few emails to those places. Yea, I've always questioned the value on this thing. Its hard to keep track of so many different items. Haha. Once again, though, thank you very much. :)
