Great pics of a real classic. The "Patent Applied For" stamp is visible just above the neck adjuster. Bacon's patent was applied for August 22, 1905 and granted June 19, 1906. Instruments after about sn #150, have the " Patented June 19, 1906" stamp. Your banjo probaly dates from the latter part of 1905.

Thanks Shawn, should I label it 1905? I think the folks that told me '06 just based it on the catalogue reprint date.

You would be very safe with c.1905.
