I am offering my lovely Wheatstone English 5-fold bellows Treble for sale (serial number 28103).
 
I bought the concertina privately in 2010. It had been overhauled by Steve Dickinson, who keeps the C. Wheatstone & Co. brand alive, in 2007, and had only been lightly used until 2010 and never at all by me.
 
Steve Dickinson's invoice lists the work he undertook as: "Action Rebuild; Reedwork Overhaul & Tune A=440 Hz in equal temperament; Thumb Strap; and, Valuation".
 
I had good intentions to learn to play but I've ended up merely enjoying the concertina as its careful custodian and it's now time to let it go.
 
I'm inviting offers over £1,700.

I used to own and play this concertina and had it restored by Steve Dickinson.

 

I found the 'tina to be fast and tight, and loud enough to play for dance.
