...other than the badge itself? I’ve been able to convert the iPhone photos to jpeg and save them to my attachments on my BHO homepage...but (using an iPad) not clever enough to insert them (only 4 as I haven’t received the banjo yet) into this topic thread.

Thanks, Brian

They are the same specifications. Only badges were added.

And I’m sure your aware of it, but the tone enhancer ( the thing that looks like it came off a ‘52 Buick steering wheel) is not original to your banjo or a Whyte Laydie.

Ditson sold Grover Tone Rings.  It is likely that it was sold with the banjo and therefore original.

Could just as easily read Wurlitzer, Boosey & Hawkes or a half dozen other big name retailers of the day.

Looking for help in dating this Whyte Laydie style R tenor...1929?
Also seeking advise on good & proper “ clean-up” before reassembly.
Thanks, Brian
