Try a google search for Sam Ferri, owner of Diamond Accordions. The name badge matches.

Sam Ferri imported accordions from Morbidini in the 40's & 50's with his brand name ( mostly diamond). Very similar to the Crown badge accordions imported at the same period. All I've found in all models were of fine quality for the time.

Pardon my ignorance, what does "NAD" stand for in the title of the thread?

Just an abbreviated 'new accordian day' - kind of a celebratory note after having pursued one for several years.

Guess I could have used a smiley icon ( :b )

Thanks, I was pretty sure you hadn't discovered a new musical variety of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide ;)
