Found this left handed banjo at a goodwill. I can’t seem to find any identifying marks or information. Would love to know as much as possible about it. As far as I can tell it’s handmade. The bridge has a Grover label.

This resembles a Harmony Resotone, but has been modified a lot. Whatever brand, it has a plastic (probably Bakelite) rim.
It appears to have either a twisted neck, or that the neck is mounted at an angle, but pictures don't show which.

Grover bridges were put on thousands of different banjos.
That would be no more helpful than trying to identify a car by noting it had GOODYEAR tires.

What this site needs is a tutorial on how to put images from the home computer to the participant's home page, and THEN from the home page to the topic page,

Took me a while, but once I figured it out, it really is fairly simple.

There's the picture!

And, by Gump, it DOES look like a Harmony Resotone body with a modified neck mount, and a lefty neck.

I assume it is this one. I like how the peghead is not really in line with the center  of the neck. Looks a little tipsy.

I agree with everyone else. Homemade neck on a Harmony resotone rim.
