Hi all - I recently bought a storage locker at auction and among the items was a Ridi banjo. I don't find much of anything about it on the web. I don't play banjo and am wondering if anyone can tell me if there's anything special about it or if it has any value. I'm including a few pictures. One picture shows a label that says "Made in Germany USSR occupied"
Thanks in advance for any help.

I would think just being built and ID'ed as "USSR Occupied Germany" would make this thing worth a few extra $$ to certain collectors.....not even neccasarily banjo collectors.

"USSR Occupied Germany" only occpied a year or two in world history, then Germany became "East & West" for the duration of the Cold War.
