Hello,

 

I just bought an Crabb 'English' concertina.  It has 40 buttons, but no 'air' button.

 

The ends are metal, with fairly simple fretwork. 

 

Someone suggested it may be a student model.

 

Could someone please tell what year it was made, and by whom.

 

The number stamped into the metal is 18087.

 

I will attempt to add 2 photos. 

 

Mavis.

Geoff Crabb...from the Crabb family of concertina builder may be able to help you out. He is also a member of this forum.  He may reply here..or I can send you a PM with Geoff's email address.  Geoff has records from his family who made excellent concertinas for more than 150 years,

Don't forget, your posts have all been in the middle of the night in the UK Mavis, and most people only log-in occasionally. Have patience.
