The seller claims to be Eric Beharrell, who is a respectable maker of ukuleles and banjos, as well as a melodeon player... in short, someone I would have expected to recognise a Lachenal, rather than attribute it to Albert Silber of Silber and Fleming, the retailers whose label it bears.
What's more puzzling is that the listing claims that the instrument can be collected from NR7 0QE, which happens to be my postcode!
I have asked for clarification, but so far, no reply. All I'm saying is proceed with caution...

I did try contacting the seller via his blog, but the email address given there simply doesn't work.
So while caution is always advisable, I may have been overcautious in this case, perhaps because my own eBay account has been hijacked in the past.

I thought it was Tidder at first glance, as the fretwork is nearly identical to mine, serial # 5504. However, there are differences. It's too bad there aren't better pictures of the handles, insides, etc. What makes you certain it is a Lachenal? Also, yikes on getting your Ebay account hacked.
