In my efforts to get some restorations going I’ve bought a few pretty broken accordions trying to get a few spare reeds on hand. I bought this one on a gamble thinking the reeds might be shot. Didn’t expect to see a tone chamber in it. But the reeds are actually in pretty good shape. I see the maker took a new name in 1954. Anybody familiar with the maker. All the reeds are nailed onto leather instead of wax. 68BDC4DF-C6F4-4C96-BE91-8C7B369BBD41.jpeg

I’m intrigued that besides the one raised key the treble side is completely intact. The bass side (on the hand) is trashed. The bass reed blocks are falling apart and you can see the buttons. I think it was pretty high spec when new. Left in an attic maybe.
