A Wheatstone concertina, No. 35301, in simulated rosewood with black leather cloth covered box for same Estimate = £300/£500 see here : http://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/canterbury-auction-galleries/catalogue-id-srcan10021/lot-e2f70507-022d-4476-a43c-a5a001021154?utm_source=auction-alert&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=auction-alert&utm_content=lot-image-link The single photo shows the right hand end with 25 buttons and no air button. The ledgers give a date of 17/04/1940 and 46 buttons. I assume therefore we have a duet of some description. (I'm an anglo man - all duets look the same to me!!!) Jake

  7. This sold for a hammer price of £290, plus 20% buyers premium = £348 Jake
  8. No! The way our concertinas are made results from corners being cut in order to drive the price down! When we speak of the buttons being bushed, we mean a felt collar around the button where it comes thru the end. This reduces noise. [Not found on lower value 'tinas!] Here's a link to a picture of a SUTTNER concertina : http://www.suttnerconcertinas.com/images/a2-32_lg.jpg you can clearly see the red felt around the buttons. Higher quality concertinas also have longer buttons that project below the lever and locate into a hole in the board on which the lever mechanism sits. This keeps the button straight when moving up & down. The bottom of this hole is also 'bushed' to prevent a loud knocking sound every time a button is pressed!! I mean, we don't want to be relegated to the rhythm section do we!?!? Jake

  11. I have a Gremlin 30 button Anglo, which is basically a Stagi W15S. Here's a link to two pictures on FLICKR photo sharing site https://www.flickr.com/photos/33443085@N05/shares/6xpA7q The first shows the buttons in position with the rubber tubing. The second is a button on its own with the rubber in place, showing the slot which fits over the lever. The rubber needs to be compressed to slide the button on and off. As THEO says; to get the end back on invert the carcase and offer the end from underneath - best done with two people perhaps. Jake
  12. Thats strange! A thread about a WALLIS concertina on E-bay and here : http://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/trs-auctions/catalogue-id-thomso10046/lot-f1d5efaa-8eb1-4983-8733-a59a010aebf5?utm_source=auction-alert&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=auction-alert&utm_content=lot-image-link is one for auction in Edinburgh. Numbered 35222 with an address in EUSTON ROAD London Jake
