I'm going to check out this banjo later this week. All I have at the moment are these photos from a classified ad.

I'm drawing a complete blank as to what it might be. Maybe a 70's import?

If it's a decent instrument it's an absolute steal so if I end up buying it I'll post more photos.

European (zero fret)--I see that dot on the heel on some East German banjos but the heel shape is not typical of E. German banjos, The rest does not match up with anything I know.

I would say Musima from the 1970's

I think this exact banjo was discussed here a few months ago.

The opinion then, as was again stated by Bee Gee above, that it was a Musima.

Here's a similar item

They come up fairly regularly sometimes with the Kay KB54 stamp and K logo on the head sometimes with Musima on the head.
