Possibly worth a punt at £250, though it’s quite an old box - the maker Orlando Pellegrino from Recanati went out of business in 1961.

Yes good advice!  I also think it would be wise to try  before buying!

Can't quite make out the markings on the treble couplers.
Anyone know how many voices this model has?

The photo in the Gallery of a similar model has the upper coupler marked (by hand, it looks like) with four dots, which suggests it may be 4 voices. Maybe with the other coupler giving 3 voices, à la Hohner Gaelic?

I wish  sellers would include photos of the back and bottom of their accordions. It makes me think that
there's some wear on the bellows in those areas and also some other damage they don't want us to see.

Agreed Mike!

Also I always want to see the air valve. I understand that this one has a PA key type  but Id like to know its position.  Some of them are ridiculously high!

Always good to check these things.
I suppose for being made in 1961 and relatively cheap at £250 , there is the possibility of some repair being required.
The overall photo of the box is fairly clean looking though.
