Looking For My Original Concertina

Recommended Posts

Metal ended Lachenal EC No. 52426


In 1958 from a proverbial junk shop in Reading I purchased my first Concertina. I recall the concertina cost me less than the case my Mother promised to purchase if I bought the instrument. It served me well, and eventually deserved the new bellows subsequently provided. Sadly green eyed envy crept in - that mythical ultimate concertina was on the horizon.


52426 was taken to Crawley in the early in 1980's in the hope of an upgrade (!) The shop was unexpectedly closed, but fortunately a prospective buyer, who I think came from the West Country, arrived at the same time. So as prospective seller and prospective buyer met, a deal was done. Sadly, after 25 years loyal service No. 52426 was callously gone for ever.


If you own, or know where No. 52426 might be, please let me know. I may well be interested in a direct purchase or part exchange, adoption, etc.
