Jeffries Bros Duet 50 button with C core

How much retuning was done? E.g., was it a C core originally, or retuned from another key? If C core originally, did you put it into equal tempered? Etc.

It was C core when I first saw it, but cannot recall if this was original by stamps on the reed shoes. I think it was. Instrument is in equal temp A:440 pitch. with new pads and valves supplied by Colin Dipper. So as a historic record, fairly worthless, but as a playing instrument.......wow! :D

will shortly be going on eBay with a A$3,000 reserve.

From some earlier correspondence we had, I gathered that your acquaintance wanted to keep a little control over the choice of final purchaser, for similar reasons to Alan Turnbull's. Wouldn't she do better to do as he did, and offer it for sale here? She'd avoid eBay charges as well.

I think the asking price could deter would be cannibals :P

Also, should it be sold from posts on this thread, I'm sure a suitable donation will be made......

I have replied to Chris off list to comment further on his points.
