Was looking on Craigslist and came across this. Anyone know what it

This looks like a product of the Buckbee factory.  I cannot see the engraving clearly.  I have heard of "Benary" branded instruments, but not "Binary"

Do a search for Benary Buckbee. I don't know about it, but there is quite a bit of info on here about the Benary banjos made by Buckbee.

I don’t know any details about the banjo other than it’s been for sale for quite a while. Pretty sure the same seller has a few other banjos listed including a Schall that looks pretty nice.

The heel engraving reads Benary’s Professional. Looks like a higher-end one. I concur that the actual maker was Buckbee.

Buckbee for sure

Looks to my uneducated eye that the tuning pegs look new. When I looked at Reverb ads, the pegs were a yellowed color. I guess it doesn’t matter if it isn’t a collector instrument.
