I'm refurbing a Weyman & Sons Banjolin which appears to be from around 1920. There's a replacement goat or calf skin head on it that's very high quality, but I can't quite make out the maker. Any ideas?

Most of the early heads were Jos Rogers ones.

No matter who made the original, they probably have been out of business for years.

I have read good things about the heads sold now by John Balch. He is a member here.

Most of the Weymann banjos I've had, and it's a lot, with old skin heads were Rogers heads. The 1930 catalog lists Rogers heads for sale. There is normally a stamp on the inside, Jos B Rodgers Jr.
