Old school Harmonica?

When I was cleaning through some old things of my Grandmothers I found a very old looking Harmonica. It's still in it's original box and it say's
(Koch's Three Stars Tremolo Concert Harry Very Best Harmonica in the World: Extra fine reeds Germany)

harmonica it self has a nice desine on the ends and plays pretty good i guess.. I'm thinking of selling it on E-bay so someone can enjoy it.. I don't play so i have no use for it.

Question: Do you know the possible worth of it or a good site to look it up on? I'm looking now can't find a site..

Harmonicas, even really old and interesting ones, just don't have a lot of value on the resale market. There are a number of reasons why. Probably the most important two reasons are "ewww! that was in someone's mouth" and the fact that there's no way to be certain it even works unless you know how to play it. "I blew in it and it made a noise" isn't enough information and that adds to the "ewww! that was in someone's mouth."

Then there's the fact that, compared to other sorts of instruments, a brand new harmonica is cheap. Add to that the fact that tremolo harmonicas aren't as popular as are 1) diatonics 2) chromatics and that the tremolos that seem to be most popular these days are the Asian made solo-tuned instruments. A lot of strikes against getting much for your instrument.

But! (a huge "but" here) - some people collect harmonicas and like to have one of each maker or one of each type from each period. Just like a coin collector doesn't spend his coin collection, most vintage harmonica collectors don't play their collection (much) and will spend money on a missing piece or two. There are Koch collectors out there.

If yours is double-sided or part of a multi-harmonica set-up rig then it's rather collectable. If the box has anything of period interest design then the market extends to collectors of period decor as well.

Yours probably isn't one of the "OMG! did you see what's on eBay?" harmonicas but it might be of interest to a collector from the period it was made. If that's the case and more than one collector wants it then nobody here can guess what price it might bring as they fight over it.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Antique-Koch-German-Huge-Double-Sided-Concert-Harmonica-/390309835855?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5ae047744f for example, sold for $45

PS: almost every harmonica says it's "the very best" - even toys from the dollar store.

It could well be worth keeping around as something that grandma has owned and some family member may well like to play it for that reason. If not, by all means don't toss it out - even if you don't get much on eBay it should be collected by someone.
