When I featured a fake accordion containing a hidden mini-disc player back in June in caused a bit of a stir. What a cheat ! We all thought.
We it seems this type of thing is nothing new.
This is a Tanzbar player accordion from between 1900-1930. It uses paper rolls instead of mini-discs and I guess you had to squeeze the bellows to get it to play (let me know if I'm wrong about this bit).
This one came with 16 rolls and sold for exactly $500 US on Ebay (£265). Compare this with the $1595 for the mini-disc player... I know which I prefer.
