Hi folks
not really in touch with the banjo buying market at the moment, but wondering what a 1905,thin rim,short scale ,consalvi engraved white lady #7 would be worth nowadays? In amazing original condition,gold plated pearl button tuners,original english leather case. Probably the nicest one ive seen in all my time.

Hi, very nice!! I have seen them go for 8 to 12 thousand.

Beautiful instruments .

In the US, a Consalvi engraved instrument such as yours would be in the 10-11K +\_ range USD$ from a respected dealer.

You are in Australia, and probably have the only instrument such as that on the entire continent, so no idea what a value would be south of the equator.

No Idea, that is a beauty though!

Beautiful banjo. I'd say $8-12k depending on the day. The market isn't as strong as it once was, but this appears to be a stunning example.

I don't know what the banjo market is like in Australia, but you might want to consider that while Consalvi engraved #7's are not very common in the US, they are probably much rarer where you are. And the condition of yours is unusually fine.
