Quality Anglo Concertina (C/G), 51 metal buttons, metal ends and modern hard case. I acquired this to have it serviced and get it back to top flight condition, but alas I have too many projects on the go and also need to thin my collection. No makers name badge showing that I can see. A concertina player I know opened it for me and said it has steel reeds, riveted action, 7 fold (airtight) bellows, 160mm across ends. Needs a service (valves/bush service and small repair to veneer etc). I asked him to take a photo of the insides while he had the ends off – see attached. This instrument needs a bit of work but should be a real beauty when finished. I am happy to send more photos if you PM me, I could only upload one. I am asking £2,500 GBP and I am happy to make a donation to this site if successful.
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
