I'm playing the duet these days and two systems is more than my brain can deal with! So.... Selling my Wheatstone 48 key English Concertina, I believe it's a Model 22. Serial Number 23472.... Pics below. In great condition. Plays very well. 5 Fold Bellows (Look like they're the originals) Metal ends are in very good shape, no real wear. There's 2 bowing valves, one on each end. Steel reeds and all look original. Tuned to A440 concert pitch. Professionally re-valved this year. Original leather case still solid and useable. Looking for £2250. Offers will be considered. The concertina is in the South of England, I'm happy to try and meet so buyers can try it first. PM me if interested. Thanks.
This Wheatstone concertina, serial number 36098, is from my father's estate. He lived in England from 1950 to 1956, and almost certainly bought the concertina new in 1955. It appears to be in almost perfect condition, with the exception of one broken key (see photos). I would welcome expressions of interest, and/or assistance in appropriately pricing this concertina. I am located in southern Florida (Stuart) if you are nearby and would like to personally inspect the instrument. I am aware of the 2% contribution request, and will gladly comply. Thanks in advance for your interest and help. Kim Singleton, Stuart, FL
