Hope it's a Lachenal....

Recommended Posts

Hello    ,   I've  been  interested in concertinas for a while and yesterday I purchased one I found in a very sad state in an antique and collectables shop. It was a bit of a punt as it had no identifying  marks apart from , " Steel Reeds " and  " English  Make "  and "Trade Mark " stamped in a  palm rest (?)  it has 20 buttons plus the bellows filler .... when I arrived home, I took one end off it  and found the number 177201 stamped inside. From what I've seen and read online , I'm hoping I have got a budget Lachenal  from the 19 tens....I would appreciate your thoughts on that number...if it is worthy  of restoration ,  I will do that ,  cheers Barry.
