Here is my 1920s Paramount/"Lange style" tenor banjo in very good condition. I have played Irish trad on it for years and have greatly enjoyed it for that, but I need to make room for instruments I'm playing more regularly (mostly old-time banjo and guitar).
Arch-top tone ring. Original Hardshell Case in good condition, with brand new replacement leather handle. I recently installed new Waverly planetary tuners and a new goatskin head. The skin head has sweetened the tone very nicely, which could be a bit brash with the previous mylar head. The neck is straight, and I found it both an excellent player and very attractive. Loud and clear, holds its tuning nicely.
Some of the inlay/marquetry/binding around the pot shows some gaps. This could be fixed if you're worried about cosmetics, but everything is pretty stable as it is and not demanding of attention or repair.
