Hi Ronnie, I've changed the designation to Anglo concertina, since that's important.

Also, the serial number 55670 suggests that this is a late, post-WWII instrument, perhaps from Boosey & Hawkes in the 60s or 70s. So the description as an antique may be open to interpretation.

Looks like a nice instrument, good luck!

Might be worth putting an advert in the Buy & Sell section of the forums at http://www.concertina.net/forums, as that looks like a decent squeeze & you might well find an interested buyer over on C.NET

According to the Wheatstone ledgers this concertina was finished on April 30, 1953. The ledgers also list the model, a 5a with nickel plated ends.

Here is an article about the post war 50.000 series Wheatstones.
