I suspect Gretsch or Lange 1930's. ( I have a similar Gretsch banjo uke w/ this neck brace, & not the usual Gretsch style neck brace).

Hows it play/sound?  worth $85 and a new head?

I would pass on this one, & search for a better instrument. It may be an interesting old artifact, but it was probably near the bottom of a beginner line of banjo ukes, not really a satisfying voice or player. I found one at a swapmeet for $35, & play it occasionally for fun. But at $85 plus tax, shipping & a new head ?? You wouldn't really have to put out a lot more $$ to get a better instrument. Many decent banjo ukes can be found in the $200 total , range.

And I already have a decent banjo uke - probably going to pass on this one - thanks for the advice.  Although, I could always make an offer, and they're local so I don't have to pay shipping...
