Not a lot of info on this model out there ? 
 

I saw the Yellowstone jewelry info but not much else out there. 
 

I just picked one and looking for more on this model.

You probably know that it was made by the Buckbee company which closed in 1896 so manufacture date was before then. Probably 1890ish + or -. If this is the one that recently was sold on eBay it looked like a nice little banjo that should sound pretty good when properly set up with a nice set of LaBella 17 strings. Not sure what else you would like to know about it.

Sorry ! Just saw this and thanks for the reply. I was just wondering because usually you can find references to old banjo models but this one (I got on eBay) and the Yellowstone Jewelry banjo is the only mention I have found. I am taking it apart and doing a mild cleaning on it now.
