Here are three photos of Lew Snowden's six-string Buckbee (?) over the years. The clearest image of the banjo is the portrait of an unidentified man (probably a family friend) holding it in a Mount Vernon, Ohio, studio portrait dated circa 1870. 

I'm wodering if anyone here has actually seen this banjo, or at least knows of its current whereabouts. There is a 1993 photo showing a detail of the custom engraving, which reads "L.W. Snowden."
