I have been cleaning out a storage room and found a concertina which we bought for my husband in the 1970s: it is a gorgeous, pristine instrument that was sold in a hard case, lined in a red velvety material. I remember he was teaching himself to play Irish, English folk music.
It has no markings on the outside;
~2 straps, 2 finger supports
looks like rosewood or walnut;
~24 white buttons on the left side, 24 on the right with an extra black button.
~It looks brand new, no imperfections.
~Appears to match online with Wheatstone 48 buttons
A friend who plays the concertina sent me; I suppose I need an appraisal and then perhaps I can make a sale.
I would be most grateful for any info!
Thanks so much in advance,
