Maybe something less sarcastic, like “Perhaps you could post some photos if you haven’t tried, but if you have tried, they haven’t appeared” might cause the new member here to feel a bit more welcome. Just sayin’

Welcome. I hope some of the earlier remarks didn't scare you off.

Photos are really the only way to identify what you have. I'd help you with that, but I've never posted any pictures myself and so I don't really know how.

Needed are pictures of the front, the back with and without any "resonator," a shot of the side, and close-ups of the peghead (where the little knobs are to tune it)front and back. Show the entire banjo in in at least one of the pictures. The more photos, the better.

Hopefully, someone else can walk you through the procedure and you can get the requested information about your banjo.

There's a 1960s long neck Harmony in pretty good shape on eBay asking $199. I thought he might get it—pretty clean and obviously set up to be played.

Accepted $106.50 + $30 shipping.

Without actually seeing a photograph of the instrument, I can safely say that I never ever thought that the words "Harmony banjo" and "vintage" would ever appear together in a sentence.

Hi Wayne -
I just suspected this go nowhere thread was going to get interesting!
"Vintage" Harmony banjos can be cool!
Check out one of my favorite tenor banjo photos of the young guys with the womens auxiliary.
Banjo Boy is playing a pre-war "vintage" Harmony!
And, Pearloid Rocks!!

Harmony Resotone.  Bakelite body with a very narrow neck but a nice sound.  Probably worth $100 or so.
