Would love to go and look espc since I really need a chest of drawers or two. But the lack of any money in my bank account prevents me. Good luck

I found out more about pump (reed) organs. Sadly I couldn't find anything on the company that made yours though. The news isn't really good. Even though the organ is probably even older than I thought, it's not really "worth" anything. Worth, of course, being in the wallet of the buyer. Everything I've read says there is ZERO market for pump organs and it doesn't look like there ever will be again. Here are some links with more info:

Reed Organ Society

Pump Organ Restoration

You can see that all the pump organs on eBay have zero bids even though some of them are being offered for less than $100.
Pump organs on Ebay.com

I still think your best bet will probably be donating it and writing it off taxes. It would probably help if you could document as much of the history of it as possible.
