I bought this pot at a yard sale at least 30 years ago. It has no serial number. 38 brackets. Someone drilled holes between the original. It has a Stewart sticker on it.
I guess the previous owner probably was influenced some old banjos from the past that had many extra hooks. It looks like it was installed with different bracket shoes. Also the holes are not aligned. Sad really.
Stewart and Bauer or Bauer Company era rim from the monogram (budget) line. Not really that big of a loss.
