Hi Stephen,

 

the „48“ is an „English“ concertina, the „30“ an Anglo.

 

I can elaborate re the former (English) as I have one of identical appearance which has easily turned out to be my main instrument since I have acquired it.

 

It‘s a „Model 6“, among the best you can get, and given the elaborate fretwork it might have been produced to extra-high standards throughout.

 

Of course every single instrument is different and has to be judged on its own merits - and possibly faults. It also has a history of being played and treated.

 

From your pic, at least some of the end bolts seem to have been overtightend at some point (but the washers might provide a full compensation).

 

The instrument may have (premium) brass reeds (mine has). 1921 would be a very good year quality-wise. The hexagonal shape shouldn‘t put anybody off - to the contrary, it makes the instrument lightwheight and handy!

 

I reckon you will find a buyer (paying a good price) for this (if in good condition) highly desirable instrument - good luck with the sale.

 

Best wishes - 🐺

Hi Wolf.

Thanx for the info I really appreciate it. Yes it's actually in really nice condition apart from the washers , one or two were overtightened so they just put washers in all of them. But it sounds great otherwise. 

And once again thanx for the info, hopefully I get a good price and it goes to a good home .

Regards.

Steve.
