btw - despite his rider at the bottom, there is no import duty within the EU and Eire is still on the euro and not back to the punt. But with his such regular high prices one might need to know if he is VAT registered as it is at 20 per cent for the UK and apparently 21 per cent for Eire.

So all I need now is £6000 BPS and I could ship the concertina to Mum and Dad's house in Dun Laoghaire ... Speaking of which, it doesn't matter that Ireland is on the euro vs. the 'punt' (which could go either way, I.e., English punt vs. Irish punt.). In fairness, Ireland and England haven't shared the same currency since I was a child. Even before the Euro, the Irish pound and BPS had an exchange rate.

 

re: VAT. Depends on whether the Irish customer is also VAT registered.

 

Memo to me: Buy lottery ticket tomorrow. Preferably in BPS. :-) And even if I won, this concertina would be so far out of my ability-reach that it would be a shame for me to have it. But I love the idea.

This is teh concertina and seller recently discussed on this thread

http://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=13458

which also refers to earlier threads.

 

What is especially funny about his current pricing of this concertina is that only a few weeks ago you could have bought it from him for a much smaller amount of money, but he still failed to attract any bids.

* Before my time......... :) tho I do have a photo somewhere of an old Bank of Ireland (in stone across the top) building which had been shut and turned into a retail outlet and the new owners sign in the window said -Betting shop" It was in August 1979

** VAT - of course, which is why I referred to his high prices and turnover............ :)

There is a musico-technical term for this known as

  • 2 weeks later...

He's put it back up again with a starting bid of £3,500, and no buy-it-now price. The starting bid is still a few hundred more than he paid for it off an ebay auction, though why he thinks he can sell it for more than he bought it for, I am not aware. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wheatstone-Anglo-Concertina-C-G-Rare-Vintage-/170771433594?pt=UK_MusicalInstr_Keyboard_RL&hash=item27c2c5487a
