Lachenal 30 button serial number 196655

I have just taken delivery of this instrument. It is in a sorry state. It has obviously been kept in a damp environment as all the card and papers have parted company, and most of the Action box woodwork needs to be re-glued. As I was removing one of the ends to check the serial number it all fell apart!  I have my work cut out to rebuild it.


The intention is to keep it as my first 30 button instrument, so it would be nice to know something about it if possible

Best thing to do as a beginner is to choose a cheap 20 key lachenal (or other make) in good original condition that only needs the basic renovation (repad, revalve and retune) so that if anything goes wrong, you’re not ruining what could be a potentially good player.
