Any information would be appreciated. How old is this concertina and how much is it worth in this condition? It seems to work although a couple of buttons are worn off and the paper on the bellows is worn a bit on the edges. Thank you for your assistance. 006.JPG

It's German-made, most likely from the late 1800's. It's not worth restoring as a playing instrument - players want the English-made ones. A collector might want it for the swan decoration. I'd guess $100-$200 US if you can find an interested collector.

That seems a very high price for an unrestored German concertina. In the Uk similar instruments tend to fetch 20 to 50.

I have seen attractive ones go for more than that.

I would be willing to sell it for $50 plus shipping. I live in Toronto, Canada. Thanks.
