OK. I followed the morning tea with a "big" cup of coffee and (of course) an english! muffin. Here's is what I found:

 

1) 55key black duet for 1910

4) 55key black duets for 1911

? 55key duets for 1912 (three of which were in sequence beginning (sic ending ?? )with #25654

 

Now, what makes things vague is that the 1910 pricelist

http://www.concertina.com/pricelists/wheat...-Duet-c1910.pdf

has 55b and 56b duet instruments listed!

 

So I don't know if an air button was counted or even on some instruments which might be macaans or cranes. Bob Gaskins also has a diagram for a 55b Macann and says it is called a 56b in a 1930 pricelist:

In the "that's interesting" column I noted a 2", 8 key mini; six! 81b duets; a "special Oates? phone #25559;

and #25619 which has 84 keys and P.F. fingering.

 

I'm out of coffee and need to practice.

To add to the sum of all knowledge......25654, is a McCann....as it turns out.....rather than a Crane ? ( not connected with listing)
