Wheatstone concertinas (2)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I am new to this forum.

I have just listed two concertinas on eBay which were my grandfather's. Details can be found at:

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Model-21-Wheatstone-treble-English-concertina/254233634265

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Wheatstone-40-key-Lachenal-Anglo-concertina-pre-World-War-I/254233634033.

 

I would be happy to sell direct and then make a contribution to concertina.net for the upkeep of the website.

 

regards,

Marsh Conley

As a fellow Canadian when I read your eBay listing I teared up a little:

 

This concertina was carried throughout WWI by my grandfather who, at 39 years old, was the 43rd person to enlist in the Canadian Army. He won the Military Medal as a sapper for his bravery.

 

It is very sad that nobody in your family is a player or might want to be a player in the future.

 

Don.

I am the last of the line so it is better that they go to a good home than be thrown out because no one appreciated the, Thanks Don!

The anglo is simply a Lachenal, and one of their better models.  Including Wheatstone on the title may confuse some buyers.  Would be worth editing the listing if you can.
