From a mid to late 30's Silver Bell Number 1 (Nickel plating), 11" head. Plating wear and rust on hook tips as shown; rust is not as bad as it looks...a bit of evaporust and/or brass wire brush and they'll look great (if you even's not necessary or visible on the banjo). One of the soldered areas of one of the brackets to the armrest shows bending a little...maybe the player caught his shirt sleeve on it once, but not bad...shown in pics. This was Fred Easterday's banjo as he very nicely engraved his name in cursive on the armrest as pictured. Factory marked "Bestone" this is as pictured the long nice armrest for Silver Bells, not the shorter one that came on B&D Specials/Senioritas, etc....solder joints on hooks solid and lined up and worked fine on the Silver Bell it came off of with standard B&D notched tension hoop. The 2 original B&D tension nuts are included and threads are good. These never show up anymore, and were never easy to find off a banjo.

Please see the pictures.
