p.s. Baile and Parrot have been the Chinese standard workhorses for many years now. There have been many UK players who cut their teeth on these.

With that said, I have to ask why anyone would consider a used Chinese accordion when the market is flooded with so many better Italian and German ones.

A Verdi II (96b LMM) or III (120b LMM) or V (120b LMMM) from the era where they have the white register switches is essentially indestructible. They were made to last a lifetime but actually last more than just one lifetime.
