Would anyone have a price range on this banjo?

What you have is actually a Gibson Style 11. A TB-11.

Prices I have seen recently have ranged from 2400 to 3700 USD. I know, makes no sense with a wide range like this, but it’s what I have seen.

When they are at the lower ranges, they move pretty quick. Higher ranges, they sit.

They are pretty common as Gibson banjos go.

To expect the higher range, the instrument pretty much needs to be in near perfect shape. Any damage to the flange hits the value significantly. Same goes for the hoop.

People like to ruin these by cutting the rims and dropping new rings in them. Completely unnecessary as these instruments have a power of their own with just the plain old brass or steel ring in them.

Your looks pretty nice. Advertise it here and see what happens.
