An 1890s SS Stewart American Princess Banjo, Made in Philadelphia. This is an excellent sounding banjo, with a slightly smaller neck (17") which means you can tune up to A/D. The pot is 10 inches. I've played for years but have decided to try and trim my collection a bit. It currently has Nylgut strings but will also take steel strings. I would recommend re-fitting the bridge if you decide to switch. I think both kinds of string sound good on it.
This banjo was restored in 2012-2013 by Bob Smakula in West Virginia. I believe it has a newer neck, but the pot is all original. Serial Number: 18470
