Not seen this pattern plastic finish before, albeit, I do have a box with the same bellows papers.

I have seen this finish before, but usually with the striations running horizontally rather than vertically.......Perhaps Hohner were using up left over offcuts of celluloid covering ??.

I have seen this finish, I think, used on Brazilian built Hohner instruments.

An interesting aside here is a story told to me by the owner of a celluloid factory just outside Osimo, who supplies most of the Marché accordion makers. In 1971, to celebrate the centenary of the unification of Italy, a large run of celluloid was produced in red, white and green, to match the Italian flag. this was used to produce Centenary models for sale to the Italian market. These models did not sell as well as had been hoped, leaving rolls of celluloid and unwanted accordions in stock rooms throughout the region. Some clever bugger noticed that these colours were also used on the Mexican flag. The stockpiled accordions and celluloid were used to open a new market for Italian makers amongst Hispanic musicians, breaking what had previously been a German dominated market.
