Lachenal was apparently a good businessman (he used to work for Wheatstone before going into business for himself) and so was especially successful at producing low-cost (relative to Wheatstones) models, and these are what you're likely to find today priced between 00 and 00.If you can afford it, one of these vintage concertinas will be a fine instrument on which to learn, and frankly, you might never need to purchase another instrument as long as you live.Lachenal's production began slowly but seems to have really accelerated in the 1890s, 2.There is clearly a need for more data, but I'd be guessing that the curve of Lachenal production would be S-shaped, and would NOT reach 350000.Mathematically, 350000 concertinas in 86 years represents 4070 p.a.Therefore you should be able to estimate an age from the formula How reliable is this?We could start by asking how reliable the starting premises are.The 1850 commencing date seems reasonable, based on the reminiscences of George Jones, which have been published in Free Reed and Concertina and Squeezebox, and are available on the WWW.
