Hi there dear community,

My girlfriend just walked in with HOHNER VERDI III. Can you tell something about this beautiful craftsmanship? Price indication (not I waana sell it, might try some youtube lessons :). I know how to date guitars but not this. The case seems older than the fifties models I see on inet. I would appreciate it if you could tell about this beautiful accordion. Lesson material links also appreciated :D

Kind regards,

For insurance purposes, I’m trying to find out an approx value for a piano accordion made for my father in the mid-1930s in NYC.  Thanks!

L Giulietti & Son. New York.  “Modern”

Custom-made piano accordion by senior Luigi Giulietti in mid- to late-1930s.

Right-hand Keyboard:  24 white keys (low F => 3 octaves => A)  + 17 black keys (low F# => 3 octave => A#)

Left Bass Buttons:  6 rows of 20 + also multi-level Volume control bar built into frame above buttons.

2 volume control gauges (sort of like gas tank with arrows!) set into scroll above keyboard.

It’s in good condition, but would probably benefit from an overhaul. Original case.
