I picked this accordion at an estate sale I went to and have very little idea how much it's actually worth. It appears quite old, as it came in its original leather case and has some wear on the straps. Otherwise it seems to be in great condition, and sounds great too (despite my poor attempts at actually playing a tune, haha). I'm posting it because the prices I've seen for them vary incredibly. Other vintage Coronet accordions (which this one is) I've seen are asking between $400 and $1800 ... I paid $200 for this one, although they were originally asking $575 (was fun talking them down!). Thoughts as to what it's really worth?

    As you pointed out in your start, asking and getting are two different things. In order to get an accutate value you'll need to see some completed auctions on e-Bay............ or check with a music or pawn shop..

    EBay is not a great place to find a value on an item to my opinion. I see items go off on EBay that I wouldn't even list that cheap to start with. If you get two people wanting the same item it will bring a fair price. On the other hand an item is only worth as much as someone wants to pay. Like I said just my opinion. Happy collecting.

    Actually, you have a good deal, i saw one for $300 a long long time ago, so, i believe $400 bucks.

    Learn to play and join the fun! Duaneschnurr.com has 90 free accordion lessons on his site. He taught accordion for years and the free lessons are his way of giving back. Super lessons, certainly priced right and I've gone from know nothing to actually playing pretty decently. Practice, practice, practice will take you from newbie to concerts for the family and beyond.
