A lot depends on what you are looking for.  What key:  C/g or maybe G/D?  You mention this is for your 12 year old daughter.  So are you looking for something less expensive for a child? or something extraordinary?  or maybe something to fit small hands?   Also, you mention metal ends, how strong is that preference?  (I'm actually curious, because I prefer wood ends myself.)


That said, I have nothing to sell.  But these guys might, although most not local to London:


- Theo Gibb - The Box Place - I've had no dealings with him, but great guy on these forums, and well regarded.  http://www.theboxpla...ina/cat_13.html


- Chris Algar - Barleycorn Concertina, also well regarded - I've bought a Lachenal from him.  Doesn't list stock on his website, but you can contact him. http://www.concertin...Concertinas.htm Also frequently lists on ebay, seller name cocoa111


- The Music Room, Cleckheaton - great shop, good variety of melodeons and also carries Marcus and Morse concertinas in addition to vintage ones -http://www.themusicr...ath/244_250_253


- Hobgoblin - multiple locations, I know the Manchester store. Also sells on ebay sometimes.




Edit:   If the links don't lead you to something, then you might try posting in the Buy & Sell forum instead of general.  Be as specific as you possibly can about what you are looking for; you'll likely get more attention than a general plea for just some anglo concertina.  Good Luck!
