  1. Hello! I inherited an old family concertina about a year ago and would like to get some vague indication of the value for insurance purposes. It's a Crane / Triumph 48 button, apparently at least 101 years old (reference to it in a newspaper article from 1916). It was stored boxed in dry conditions for probably the past 60 years; about 5 of the reeds needed to be checked / tuned but it now plays pretty well with itself. The specialist who fixed the reeds said it's in as good condition on the inside as outside (pictures of outside attached). The entire thing is tuned to A = 452 Hz. I have a couple of youtube videos playing it for an idea of the sound (apologies for my playing) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYJChpblEGE If anyone can help out with a value approximation, it would be much appreciated!

    What Price A Badge?

    Here's a topic for discussion folks: How does the presence or absence of a makers' badge on a concertina affect its value. Those of us who take them apart can tell by the works (and internal labels) who made the beast, but what about the rest of the world?
