Can anyone tell me what kind of banjo this is and value? There are not serials etc I can find on it anywhere?

Looks pretty generic; probably Asian.Also, the bridge is backwards.

I agree that it is a generic asian banjo. Likely from the 1970s. The decoration on the peghead is not from the factory. Definitely added by a previous owner.Bob Smakula

The banjo is not worth a whole lot, unfortunately… The head may have some worth though, it appears to be a Remo from what is called the "pre-EPA" era (though the EPA had nothing to do with the change in formula).
