It could be one of Wheatstones "Mayfair" models which were produced late in their history and were a good attempt to produce a cheap instrument to learn on. The Mayfair models vary quite a lot, and the ones I've seen have top quality accordion-type reeds, and they can play quite nicely. Certainly much better than a modern Chinese concertina.

you are absolutely correct. It is the same one.

I guess I will chalk that up to getting old and senile as well as having a memory like a seive..

 

 

as a follow on question though.. assuming good playable condition. For roughly the same $$ would one reccomend this over a Jackie??

Depends on condition, but if good then yes. Better reed quality, Close to "standard" treble concertina in size and weight. Jackie is bigger and a bit heavier.
