This fine 1923 B&D Silver Bell No.1 plectrum , serial #10430, is in fair to good condition and features a straight neck with the fingerboard and frets showing very minimal wear. The banjo is all original except for a replacement resonator thumbscrew. The tuning pegs are planetary and fully functional. All MOP inlay is in excellent condition. All chrome hardware throughout is brilliant, blemish/corrosion free, and looks new. Having a 98 year history, some cosmetic issues are in evidence: the resonator edge at the knee mute shows finish wear; the resonator back has markings left by belt buckles, etc.; the neck finish has gone from gloss to satin; the peghead is missing some lacquer over the MOP and has dings at the top and near the 4th string tuning peg. The original case and interior cloth cover reflect age and use, but is structurally sound and able. Additional features of this banjo include it's big voice 28 hole flathead tone ring, knee mute, and unique resonator back with edge and center circles in relief. Email or call 360.640.0046.
