English 40 Button Crabb

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I just bought an Crabb 'English' concertina. It has 40 buttons, but no 'air' button.

 

The ends are metal, with fairly simple fretwork.

 

Someone suggested it may be a student model.

 

Could someone please tell what year it was made, and by whom.

 

The number stamped into the metal is 18087.

 

I will attempt to add 2 photos.

 

Mavis.
