  1. After not receiving any enquiries from this on-line community I posted the concertina on eBay: here's the link http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...E:X:AAQ:US:1123 Thx S
  2. After much help from this concertina community I am going to place my concertina on eBay; however, prior to this I thought I'd offer it first to this community. I never did find serial no 2474 in the Sales Ledgers but did find no's before and after, thus sales-dating it around Feb 1851. It had minor restoration work done a few years ago by The Button Box, Northampton, MA. All notes work in and out and it's a sweet, bright sound. Case is original but key and handle are missing. Read Dating & Pricing topic in Concertina History forum dated 11 August for pictures and more info. If you'd like more photos, such as of the reeds, etc, let me know. Anyone interested in making me a reasonable offer, please email me at SteveDennehy@comcast.net. Postage and insurance would have to be calculated based on location and buyer would be responsible for import duties and the like. It would be nice to sell it to someone who would take care of it and, most importantly, play it. Thx again for all your help.
  3. Thx to everyone for your guidance and suggestions; you are a very tight, insightful and helpful concertina community. As I still don’t have a clue about pricing (I spent many hours web surfing and prices are all over the place) I have decided to place it on eBay and see what the market tells me. Thx again. Steve
  4. See my post in this forum next to yours. Your photos look similar to those I posted and its a Wheatstone. Burnt Oak.
  5. Thx. I didn't buy it from The Button Box; they refurbished it a few years ago. I bought it London about 40 years ago. Still, as I only live a few miles from The Button Box I'll take a ride and have a chat with them.
  6. And a typical example of the model Louis Lachenal engineered for Wheatstone's, which first went into production in 1847, making it possible for concertinas to be sold at a lower price. Can anyone help with pricing? Thx
  7. here r the photos i promised. As u can see the leather handle is missing from the case, as is the key lock.
  8. Sure. Have any more info on it? I'm charging my camera to take some photos.
  9. Thx. It does have brass reeds and a very sweet tone. It was refurbished by The Button Box, Northampton, Massachusetts, USA 2 or 3 years ago. One reed and leather straps were replaced. What will be most important to me is that it goes to someone who will play it. Money is not my motive for selling. I will post some photos. Thx again. I research the Wheatstone sales ledgers and couldn't find 2474. I did find numbers very close (2467, 2469, etc) and they are all early 1851 entries.
  10. This is my first entry on this site, so I hope I am in the right section. Anyway, I have a Wheatstone Concertina 48-key that I am trying to get more info on and price for sale. The serial number is 2474. The only date I have found is on the two hinges on the box, which show "Sep271843" or "Sep2/1843". Any help much appreciated. Thx.
