Stephen Chambers Posted August 25, 2009 Share Posted August 25, 2009 As a rare concertina, what kind of value might this hold? I've seen Charles' instruments offered for sale. Is this something that would be considered as valuable? Or would it perhaps be more so given it's rare nature? Reg, Playability and desirability are much more important than rarity with an instrument like this, whilst a W. Jeffries is pretty much of an "unknown quantity" since most players have never seen one - so it'll be worth less than a C. Jeffries. In any case, we still don't know for sure what it is, though there seems to be a pretty good chance that it's an Anglo after all, but then there's the question of what keys it's in, and what the layout of the buttons is. It may be that the middle rows are in the "home keys" of the instrument and the outside ones are accidentals (like a 4-row C. Jeffries), or possibly all 4 rows are in different keys. These factors will all affect the value, but it's going to be in the thousands anyway, if it is an Anglo. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
