Try and find a decent baritone-treble Aeola!
This is number 32414 and has metal ends, metal buttons, steel reeds and 7 fold bellows.
It comes in its original case which does needs some restoration but is repairable.
The concertina itself has just come back from a major restoration and is in lovely playing condition with new pads, etc and in modern concert pitch after its tuning.
A baritone treble is basically a tenor-treble with two extra notes below on the right-starting on that side with A and Ab-while on the left it has 4 extra notes below a tenor treble-starting at low G.
In other words it is a tenor-treble which goes even more into the baritone range while still having all the tenor and treble notes in their normal positions but is missing the top 6 notes of the treble-the ones we never use unless we are top players!
