Crabb Concertina - how do I get a valuation ?


Dr Alison

Recommended Posts

My father was a great concertina player, and I have the privilege of inheriting his instrument and eventually learn to play it ! But first I need to find out how to get it valued so that I can ensure my two other siblings are compensated. It is a Crabb Concertina (with case), in black, with 24 keys, and a serial number of 28408. Hoping someone here can help shed some light. Thanks Alison

28408 isn't a valid Crabb serial number, though Crabb's commonly put their stamp inside instruments, made by other firms, that they had repaired and/or sold.

 

Are there 24 keys on one end, or is that the total number of keys?

 

Photos might tell a thousand words...
