Hey, Jenny and John! No hard feelings please! John really wants the concertina and has the money ready - and Jenny needs it.
My suggestion: Jenny, add the "or best offer" option to your ebay-auction and accept John's offer as agreed. That way both sides can depend on a controlled and safe sale via paypal with protection for both sides - at the cost of the ebay-fees.
As far as I know there are no import duties on an "accordion" to Canada!
In my opinion the agreed price is not really a bargain, but realistic! So it should be a win-win situation for both!
Just for comparison: As somebody here mentioned, a Lachenal Boyd is a good Lachenal new-model with custom ends!
I have a nice metal-ended Lachenal new-model for sale, recently restored to "as new" condition by David Robertson, with six-fold bellows - for 1800€ ( 2500 CND $, 2050 US$, 1300 Pound )...
