Picked up a TB1 with a full thickness rim for $95. Waverly tailpiece and an Oriole shaped headstock. Hide head has a split about 1.5 inches long at the tension hoop. The case is in terrible shape but I'm happy with the purchase. Looks to be late 1920's. Doesn't look like it was played much. I'll post pictures later.

Heres one I acquired a few years ago.....wish now I'd never sold it.

I'm not sure now, how I ended up calling a TB2 !

The RB1 is a different banjo.

I have a friend who traded me a Tb1 just like that for a piece of junk motor home that has not run for 10yrs. With the right neck and bridge it is one kickin chicken. I built the neck, got an original flat flange, added a arm rest from the 20s and presto tail piece. I love it.
