I just skimmed through openbacks listed in the Classifieds. A fair number priced well under $1,500; some less than $1,000. This is where I would look if you need a decent openback for a reasonable price. It seems to me there’s a lot of good value available—worth looking through if you’re in the market. Disclaimer: I have nothing for sale, nor any connection with any of the sellers.

Bill, I think your post is a real service to anyone thinking about buying a banjo. There are bargains to be had.

I’ve sold two in that price range in the last month — a 12” Rickard Maple Ridge and an 11” Enoch Tradesman fretless — and both buyers were very satisfied. We truly live in a golden age of lutherie!
