  1. Thanks for sharing. If you had to guess the age and value, what would you say? I see that what appears (to me) to be a similar one sold for around $100 not too long ago: http://www.ebay.com/itm/20-BUTTON-BISONORIC-CONCERTINA-SQUEEZE-BOX-German-Made-/251129808434?pt=UK_MusicalInstr_Keyboard_RL&hash=item3a7880c632&nma=true&si=rpkMg4ToElR33ZOYjn8diNY6xy4%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 I've been looking for something to replace the old Silvagni I started out with. Are spare parts available for the German concertinas like they are for Lachenals? Or are they money pits?
  2. Did you see where it said "hexagon"? Would that make it a German-made Anglo-German concertina or just a 6-sided German concertina? Any other differences between the German and Anglo-German other than the shape of the box?
  3. Thanks. The earliest advertisement I've found for an anglo that could play in the key of D is from the 1850s, for a 22-button C/G. http://books.google.com/books?id=SG4PAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA58&lpg=PA58&dq=%22improved+german+concertina%22&source=bl&ots=YDQyU42Fu-&sig=0mKosjOWSzUouoh5YulhDnWFTCU&hl=en&sa=X&ei=7gqDUNjcNKi40gGF_oC4Bw&ved=0CFoQ6AEwBg#v=onepage&q=%22improved%20german%20concertina%22&f=false Theo, how often do you run across 22-button anglos?
  4. I know that the early 20-button German concertinas were in C/G and the first Anglo-Germans followed suit. But when were G/D concetinas first produced?
  5. I'm looking for a 20 button Lachenal in good working order. Prefer G/D but would consider C/G.
