I have acquired this banjo and case (and set list) from Lamar Thomas who was in the "Knoxville Grass" in the 1960's. Trying to determne it's value. James Woolvin Broun aka Woolvin James

Love those inlays! Chuck said they were all mail order from German catalogs! These Brazilian rosewood necks sound incredible. I’d love to see more pics.

And you ask about value - I've not seen many higher grade metal rim Odes for sale lately but I'd imagine in the $1600-$2250 range. The market is generally soft right now so depends how urgent you want to sell.

Pictures of condition would help, original equipment affect value. If you get a dealer offer, ask double that. Baldwins sell pretty quick when priced well and folks like them.
