I just bought a Paramount Style 1 (one) 19 fret tenor banjo.
The serial number is 11363 . It has the Piano /harp badge on the inside.
Does anyone know what year this banjo was made?
Also, what size should a replacement head be?

Your banjo was manufactured in 1922, the second year they were made. It should have the bar style arm rest, not the "hot dog" style that came later. The head is 11 1/8. An excellent source for Paramount heads is Bob Smakula Great prices and FAST service.

Thank you Thank you !!!
I looked at some pictures on google and I noticed the Hot dog bun style on other Paramount banjos.
You're right ,mine is not like that.
thanks for the lead on banjo heads!!
