The prize has been delivered. And appreciated in its new home.
Long may melnet exist. Gone to a good cause. I am so pleased.   ;D ;D

Maybe Lester will add a comment as to its future.

It was indeed fortunate that NCB was so generous to offer this concertina up for free to the person with the highest IQ on melnet  ;)

I have been looking for a concertina to hone my fettling skills on and this little box offers me just that as it is need of TLC in the shape of valves, pads, and tuning. My intention, once I have fixed it up, to once again offer it up to a new home as the prize in a competition.

This is great - Nick and Lester, looks like you have started a virtuous circle between the two of you.  Nice  (:)

Nick, don't forget about the 10,000 quid that you got out of the bank by mistake and don't need anymore.
