Wow... no doubt it will reach 4000+ pounds in spite of the sinking economy :-)

Looks really nice. Closer to £5,000+ I would expect.

Dick,

£3,000 is the starting point. It hasn't reached £3,000. It hasn't reached anything.

£3,000 is the opening bid - and there are still no bids.

Someone will probably bid, but it's such a gamble. Even if it isnt a fake auction, and it's really a Jeffries, the question is how does it play.

I would imagine that there are potential bidders in or near London who wil have the opportunity to check it out before bidding.

I emailed the seller before the item was removed asking who did the restoration work.

The reply was it was carried out by Andrew Norman.

 

The concertina has been temporarily removed from sale as a number of interested parties asked to view it.

As this was not possible over the Christmas period it will be re-listed in the next day or so.

 

Wishing everyone a very Happy Christmas

Early Jeffries (eg pre ~1895): some have name stamped into wood, most have C. JEFFRIES MAKER stamped between buttons, some have both.

Later Jeffries (~1895 - ~1908) C. Jeffries 23 Praed St stamped into oval.

Jeffries Bros (~1908 - ~1923) Jeffries Bros. 23 Praed St stamped into oval.

"The seller ended this listing early because the item is no longer available for sale."

So we'll never know what it fetched ...

Is there some penalty from ending an auction because the item isnt 'available' ? Seems to easy.

I expect the seller paid the ebay fee for listing the item, but I don't think there is a rule saying the item must be sold through ebay, or sold at all, until an offer is made and accepted. I don't see why there should be a "penalty" for withdrawing a sale.
