A beautiful example of a 40-button Wheatstone.  This one, 58854, model 7A, C/G, dates to 1965 and is a fine player.  8-fold bellows in perfect condition.  Comes with a good case.  Looking for US$2300 or will consider close offers.

Pics of the left reed pan as requested.  Note that some of the valves had curled and have been replaced.

Hey, so I don't know much about these late Wheatstones, and I'm wondering whether it could serve as a upgrade from my (very decent) c. 1949 Wheatstone I bought from Ben a couple years ago.  What is the action like on these? It looks like the reed pans are a bit less annoying than on my Wheatstone - the reeds just slide out like in good quality reedpans rather than being bunged in with clips.  Anybody have any thoughts? In my kind of simplistic idea of Wheatstone production I have the impression that earlier is better but it would be good to hear other opinions...
