The condition is stated as brand new, unused, in original packaging:-
 
New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging is applicable). If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag.

I've had reliable information that this is indeed genuine but it is being sold by someone who doesn't know anything about concertinas on behalf of the owner.

In which case it would be very helpful if the seller would pass questions on to the owner and come back with the answers. It does make sense that someone who has never sold on ebay would get someone who is a regular seller to do it on their behalf.

Agreed.  He needs to edit it and add some more relevant photos.  Unfortunately that's up to him.

Judging from the anchor and cable bellows end stamping, I’m guessing that this is a Shantyman model. It is a shame that there are no end photos or reliable information. Then, since they won’t ship to US, it is a moot point for moi!

We're extremely suspicious of this Dipper. We've asked twice for pictures of the ends and for the serial number and had no response, and the fact there are no pictures of the ends to begin with makes no sense. We're aware of three Dippers stolen in Ireland over the last 6/7 years, and our thoughts are that the reason for no end pictures might be so that the instrument isn't identifiable. We've been hurt before by buying instruments that have turned out to be stolen- we lost the entire price we paid for them with no compensation. I'm sure that the person who listed the item does have the instrument, but there are a number of red flags.
