I had this one in my shop for repair/partial restoration. One of the local banjo player/teacher/experts said he had one very similar that was a Buckbee from around 1900.
I had to replace the dowel stick, make a neck brace, bridge, tailpiece, and nut, and replace the frets which had been removed by the owner, and generally clean it up.
I also put some stain on the peg head face. It seemed that it had had some stain on it before.
The tuners are a set that the owner had bought for it - some brand of metal friction tuners.
