This model might bring, $75 to $100 +-, considering it's condition. (The shipping alone might be more than it is worth)

Those tuners are prone to falling apart and yours are already cracked. I have a couple sets of those knobs taken from Harmony and Kay ukuleles but it would surprise me if there are four good ones in the box. I might use a set on a uke with nylon strings but never with steel. Fortunately, guitar style tuners that fit are quite inexpensive. At some point in the mid 1960s, Kay started using guitar tuners on these.

The repro vintage style replacements are very hard to find right now due to supply chain issues but these will look correct from the front.

I've posted links in your other thread including Frank Ford's on setup. These are easy to adjust but anyone who wants to play it will require different tuners.

$100 + $50 shipping, cracked tuners and no bridge… No bidders — imagine that.

Nothing wrong with being optimistic, I suppose. 

 

My time was not wasted, though. I found rookie cards for a few Major League ballplayers with whom I went to school. 50 year high school reunions coming up. Getting them signed and talking over old times will be fun.

mikehalloran you should have some "rookie cards" made with your likeness, sign them and hand them out to the folks at your reunion. Whether they want them or not.

Ha!

Though these guys were baseball players, I was on the track team with each of them and I have pictures. I like that idea!
