From searching on the net this seems to be 1885-1895 range. Not sure if everything is original- I have added a few more pictures but will need to take some more later. There is no inlay on the neck which is missing a few frets. Can't find a serial number. I guess this is probably a No. 1 Special.
Here are some old bridges and some strings found in the case. I guess they are old but made of wire and not to be used on this model. A few original wrenches. Any value to these other items for collectors on the hangout?
"3" is stamped on the wood rim next to the dowel and also on the top side of the dowel itself (I had to use a mirror to see this). I guess the serial number should be 4 or 5 digits but "3" is clearly there where the longer serial number should be. Could this be an early version or prototype?
This looks like a AC Fairbanks No 1 Special or No 1 Special Electric-
Perhaps serial number 3
Any estimates on what its worth?
Thanks (also thanks to Hank Schwartz for telling me where to look for the SN)
