I bought the model 22 about three years ago off Chris Algar at his place. In fact, he had several, I tried them all and picked the best one.

She looks and plays as good as new: new six-fold bellows!!! ( usually they only have 5 ), new pads, new valves, good (probably not original ) thumb-straps, concert-pitch. She comes in her original sturdy leather box - unfortunately as often without the lock-hatch and strap - it will protect her well on her trip and will be nice little restoration-project;-)

In fact she will benefit from some playing, as I didn't play her at all. I bought her mainly for my girlfriend, who then decided to quit playing...

Number 26662 http://www.horniman.info/DKNSARC/SD01/PAGES/D1P0670S.HTM.

 

I'm looking for 2.500€

 

The model 21 is number 27031 ( http://www.horniman.info/DKNSARC/SD01/PAGES/D1P0820S.HTM ). It has rosewood frames ( often they are black ) and ( as it looks ) original 6-fold bellows. It has a very light action and is quite loud... It has flat metal ends while the M22 has raised metal-ends. It is supposed to make some difference to the sound!? It comes in its original hard-box ( not leather ), which is in good condition.

Again I bought it off Chris Algar about 6 years ago but un-restored and had it restored by David Robertson ( http://www.concertina-restoration.co.uk/ ).

He didn't do the woodwork ( which is not perfect, but ok ), but he did valves, pads, thumb-straps, pull-down to concert-pitch and some cosmetic work.

I played her for a while ( on the road ;-).

 

I am looking for 1.700€...

 

The boxes are located in Germany…

 

PM me for further information and bigger pics...

 

Here you will find them both: http://www.concertina.com/pricelists/wheatstone-english/Wh-Pricelist-Eng-c1918.pdf, still at bargain-prices;-)
