I have found this banjo for sale.  Any ideas on the value of this instrument? Here is a link to another one. billsbanjos.com/buchanan.htm It sure is a beautiful little thing. Thanks.

Depends what sort of condition it's in. The pot's are quite attractive but the drone setup is a bit unusual. £100 - £200 would be my guess.

I sold one on ebay in August 2016 for $207.50.  It had some condition issues like missing inlay, tailpiece, mismatched hooks, etc..  I doubt it would bring that much today.

Interest in quirky British banjos seems to have waned.  As far as I can remember it was always pretty soft but now even more so.
