My father lived in England during the 1950s. At that time (or perhaps afterwards) he bought a Wheatstone concertina, serial number 36098. I was/am executor of his estate, and we continue to find things he collected. This concertina is one of them.
With the exception of one button, which has broken off flush with the metal grillwork, the concertina appears to be in perfect condition. It plays all notes; the bellows seem fresh and supple; the body and carrying case show virtually no signs of wear.
Do you have suggestions about the best way to sell this concertina. I've checked on Ebay, but there are no active listings at this time. This forum seems like a more appropriate place ... perhaps for selling, and certainly for advice from people who know what they are talking about.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions you can give to me.
