Large 11 13/16” head pot with Fiberskyn head. Pot is stamped 59952. So apparently from late 1923. Straight modern neck, possibly by Wyatt Fawley--the 26" scale length and inlay colors in the flowerpot inlay suggest this in addition to what I heard when I bought it years ago. Lovely peghead inlay. Planet tuners, work fine. Old Style Waverly tailpiece. Two tiny “railroad spikes” in neck for 5th string when capoed. Moon type bridge. Some tarnishing of plating. Some wear here and there but not alot. The case works fine but has a good deal of wear. A very nice banjo. See photos. Email with questions. Thanks!
