  1. What a delightful tune. Thanks for making the dots available. I look forward to learning it.
  2. I read this post Rusty Bits & got the warm fuzzies from your story. Bit of a fairytale ending! Thanks for sharing it.
  3. Thought I'd update my comments on this thread. I've been investigating a bit further now I'm taking the concertina out more & it's interesting what your home insurance doesnt tell you unless you ask. I've already posted that I had to ask before I was told there was a lower limit than the value of my concertina if left in the car. I haven't been happy to leave the box in the car anyway as I like to keep my eye on it. However, I had a good discussion with the guy at Newmoon after getting a quote online today & learned a lot more. For instance: - many house insurances iinsure for theft from the home,. but their definition may require it to be forced entry/evidence of act of aggression against the property in breaking in. - household insurance may not fully cover if you drop your instrument whilst transporting it, eg. to your car. - household insurance may not fully cover if you loan it to someone in a club & they drop it! - household insurance won't may not cover where the box is held in premises where the security of those premises are outside of your control (eg. a hotel, bar, etc. I was saddened to see someone had had their concertina stolen from under the table they were dining at in a restaurant & it really brought it home tpo me how vigilant we need to be. The loss of a vintage box is far more than the financial value, but to lose the finances as well when it could be covered....well I decided to go ahead!! As a matter of interest, my insurance has cost just under £60 & I calculated this was a reasonable price considering all of the above is covered with no excess. I feel a lot happier now...& I've got some refund on the house insurance whrn cancelling it!!
  4. That's very interesting. I've just phoned my home insurance company & they will only insure up to £1000 if left in a car unattended. That's the limit for any item in this circumstance. Phoned Allianz and they will replace to the the full value, but the quote was just under £94 pa. I suppose it depends on personal circumstance whether that is considered necessary or not. They were very helpful & it iseems to cover a great deal for the money if these aspects are considered necessary to be in place.
  5. At last, I've managed it!! Thanks fro the help everyone. Few hiccoughs along the way, such as surgery, work, etc but now I hope folks can see the pictures here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1z364inq5gnh3zu/W2K8REwgEc
  6. I've just bought a vintage Wheatstone as an amateur & my house insurers were happy to cover it as a specified item at home or away for up to 60 days at its value. If I inform them of change in value with valuation certificate at any time in the future they will amend the replacement price. RBS. £20 per annum. Is that reasonable? I thought so as it's worth nearly £4k.
  7. Well, this one has truly gone now as I bought it from David yesterday...beautiful!! Really pleased with it.
  8. It seems I'm not allowed to use Photobucket - keeps coming up that I'm not allowed to use that image extension - any suggestions?
  9. I've tried to upload the photos, but the IMGs don't appear to transfer. I've tried looking on the site for any help instructions to upload phots but don't seem to be able to find any. Can anyone help with this?
  10. Thanks for the help so far. I've taken some photos & will attempt to upload them. The Jedcertina certainly looks hopeful. Be back within next few days.
  11. I have a friend who has asked me what they have inherited from their great grandfather. It is a hexagonal concertina with an anglo button layout. It has a green label on the box label, "By Her Majesty's Royal Letters Patent", "The New Piano Concertina","39 Keys Double Action", "No. 511" and "F. C. & S." within the border pattern at the bottom of the Label. It's in poor condition with broken hand straps & some buttons missing, but still plays some notes and the 6 fold leather bellows are intact with light green patterns. I'd be grateful for any help as they haven't much info on their great grandfather.
