These old RB-150's are a bit rare. This particular one belonged to Kinney Rorrer (great nephew of Charlie Poole) of Virginia. This banjo at some point had a "Gibson USA" Kulesh tone ring added as it would have had a 1/4" brass hoop from the factory. The hardware shows normal patina and pitting for its age and finish wear as well. There was a crack in the heel inside near the lower lag bolt that is now good as new thanks to Eric Sullivan and Steve Huber. The banjo resides in its original Lifton case. If you have questions or desire additional pictures, don't hesitate to ask.
