This is a rare bird that many of us know about. It was originally used in a circus. The story is that the owner was shot through the banjo head while playing. no, it does not have the original head.
It has nylon strings on it. The inlays are celluloid. Someone has replaced some with newer celluloid. The new inlays are whiter than the original.
The tuners appear to be original. The tailpiece is not original.
The head is plastic.
The neck has a slight bow. It is playable. The neck is laminated parallel with the fingerboard. Finish appears to be original.
A very unique piece with an amazing tale.
This was a holy grail banjo for me but it is time to let it go.

Sold as is, it could use some love, but is somewhat playable.
No returns. Feel free to come to Maine. It is a beautiful autumn!
