It was originally shipped to South Africa in May 1937. Brought back to the United States in 2010. Thanks!

O.K,
I appreciate your sense of humour, there I was being a smart ass and thinking it was a spelling mistake.

Happy New Year

It’s pretty cool to have such a rare instrument offered for sale on the Hangout! Great sounding banjo and nice picking!

Great hearing such a close relative of my RB-1 (Nov. 1937 also through Polliack) sounding so well.

Tone, timing & taste. Good work, Jim!

Apart from lacking funds big time, I'd pick it up in a heartbeat.

Though entirely happy with my straight grain maple banjo, I have a soft spot for old mahogany too....

Thinking of it, they might have been hanging on the same shop wall, back in '37~'38...

But as long as my bank account and this banjo's value are not in balance, this one is not coming my way.

Probably for the rest of my days. So be it.

To the future owner: pick it every day and be a worthy keeper of the flame!

What is the brass device next to the bracket wrench?

Is that the elusive Hoyt-Clagwell Prewar Flathead Verifyer?

With the wires attached, it would be the lights described in the ad.

Yeah really... I guess Gibson didn't think enough about it to try and miss the label.
