GUEST,Henry Piper (of Ottery) Old tuning fork (33) RE: Old tuning fork 25 Jan 20

Over the years I have seen quite a few Melodeons (Particularly Hohners )dating from the '30s and even later tuned to A=435 Hertz so different pitch standards were still common well into the 20th century and indeed as has been already said some accordians/melodians are still tuned sharp by manufacturers for a Brighter sound albeit usually by only a few cents..
