A Jeffries style 38 key C/G anglo.
It has Jeffries accidental layout and Jeffries style bellows papers but it isn't a Jeffries!
I would like to give some idea of what it is but it does not have normal Shakespeare features nor Crabb.
It is however a really well playing concertina.
It has metal ends which seem to be raised in the button area, metal buttons, steel reeds and 6 fold bellows + a decent fibreglass case.
It has been restored with new pads, valves, straps and tuned to concert pitch.
The bellows-being green have scuffs which cannot be easily hidden as you can with black but they are a good set of bellows. They don't have the normal gold tooling.
The reeds are really nice-whoever made them-very responsive and in good condition.
This is a very nice playing instrument-it just doesn't look as good as the very best makes but is half the price of a good Jeffries and plays way more than half as good!
