This is A 36 key, with a C drone, C/G Wheatsone Linota concertina. It was made in 1918, serial number 27845. This instrument is in good condition. It has been serviced regularly by Tim Collins and Noel Hill since I've had it. It is very easy to play and sounds great If you have any questions feel free to contact me at gannonsmusicshop@gmail.com. Click on the video below to view and hear this instrument.

Having now had the opportunity to view the video, the concertina being played appears to be from a slightly later vintage than 1918 (strap fastenings are different), and does not appear to be a 36 key. Maybe a 37 key, as I can see a drone button on the left hand.

 

If anyone is wondering how to establish a Wheatstone serial number, if the paper (or metal) number is missing, see the attached photograph of No.27835.

I think that you need to check the serial number. I have owned Wheatstone No.27835 since 1982.

Upon studying Ebay pictures, I believe the sellers description to be correct regarding date and the number of buttons. 18 each side including drone and wind key.

Although the ledger description (SD01 P114 October 2, 1918) shows 27845 as:

‘No 57 AG NP Rose 35 Special,

it is quite possible that the handrest/strap type shown were provided and the drone added as a late request prior to delivery.

The rosewood may have been blacked at some date during a refurbishment, though I doubt by Wheatstones.
