Also, photos are a big help....there's a lot of differences between "late '60's" and "early '70's" RB 250's

Is the number on the back of the headstock, or inside on the rim, is it continuous (as you wrote it) or are there any dashes (-) in the number?

Many thanks RioStat
Sorry I am new to this site unfortunately my banjo has just gone in to be re-fretted so can’t post a picture at the moment, the number is on the rear of the headstock and it is continuous 690068 soon as I find a photo of my 250 I will post it here it’s not the bow tie inlay.
Cheers Knappster
