Hello, Jmosher4.

The Grand Prix 1926-'27 is the medallion presented to Hohner as the winner of the "Grand Prize" at the Paris Exhibition of that date.
The award is given to the company making the best products of it's type at the exhibition.

Your harmonica was made sometime after the 1926-'27 date.

How many mouthpiece double holes does your Echo tremolo harmonica have on either side? Generally, the more holes, the more a harmonica is worth.

The condition of your harmonica will also determine it's monetary value. Does it play well? Is it in excellent condition?
That may or may not be a factor in evaluating the harp, depending on if the buyer is a harp player or collector.

The Hohner Echo harmonicas are made today, and have been made since circa 1900, maybe earlier.
Your harmonica is not rare. In fact, there may be as many as a million of these harps in existence today.
The Echo harps are among Hohner's most popular models.

The paper ad included with your harmonica may give you more information. Look for the copyright on the ad, if there is one.
That will place the vintage of your harp to within 10 years after the copyright on the ad paper.

Best regards

John Broecker
