I'm new here but not new to places like melodeon.net. I bought this concertina a few years ago and just haven't played it.
As a beginner's model it's a very good concertina in that it's perfectly in tune and plays fine (being a melodeon-player, I can confirm this), it'll be greet to learn on and is affordable.
The concertina looks and sounds like this: http://www.themusicroom-online.co.uk/product_info.php/cPath/244_250_253/products_id/3357
I have also attached a photo of the actual one.
As it's an earlier model, there's no maker's name or model number. I'm as sure as I can be it's a Rochelle as the fretwork on the ends Is identical and, what's more, I remember the name from when I bought it, but that's all.

--- The In Between Anglo Concertina
--- The Anglo Concertina Demystified with accompanying CDs
£200 + postage
I'm willing to discuss the price but even with buying a case it should still come in much cheaper than the Music Room's anglo starter pack -- Rochelle concertina, soft case and book for £370.
I'm happy to answer any questions!
