    Chas Nelson Pump Organ, mid-late 1800s, possible SN 277808

    Hello everyone. I am a Pump and Reed Organ novice. My 83-year-old mother has a Chas Nelson Pump Organ that once belonged to my great grandmother. So, this organ must be from the mid- to late-1800s. My parents no longer live in their house, and I just met with a salvage/auctioneer to clean out the house and prepare for a sale.

    The salvage guy told me that these old pump organs have more sentimental value than monetary value. Nevertheless, I want an objective second opinion.

    I attached a few pictures. Additionally, the organ barely makes sound right now. Only one pedal seems to make any air movement, and the bellows must be leaking substantially. I can also remember some of the keys and knobs not functioning either, even 30-40 years ago when it sounded better. Lastly, I also have the decorative top piece but it's not in a good location fto take pictures.

    I am located in Murrysville, PA, near Pittsburgh. Thank you.
