This is a Paramount Style C banjo pot, built under patent 1,348,652 filed: April 30, 1919, Patented: Aug 3, 1920
It is NOT an Orpheum pot. Orpheum banjos made into the 1930's maintained the earlier staples over the rim construction. This is a Paramount rim, not an Orpheum.

Yep, see my last comments, I used this for illustrative purposes for Bill Rickard...that's why I didn't title the photo...but my Orpheum #3 uses this construction...and it is MOST definitely NOT a Paramount rim as my latest pictures show...
