Schnefsky Posted July 14, 2010 Share Posted July 14, 2010 (edited) Hi all, I have come into possession of a C Jeffries 30 button concertina ( It's actually Bb/F). It is in playable condition and is the 1890s model. It is in quite reasonable condition on the exterior, has no major damage, and all the reeds appear to play in tune. I am taking it to a restorer this weekend for an opinion. I intend to sell it on Ebay very soon. Can you please give me an opinion: should I have it rstored, or sell "as is" so that the new owner gets it restored according to their taste. Would I get more "profit" by restoring it, or leaving it original? I am a piano accordion player, and although thios is a fascinating instrument, I will never learn how to play it, so it should go to a good person. I would like to maximise my earnings to spend the earnings on another accordion...you understand. Thanks in advance for any advice.
