Hi, we are moving and I just found an old SS Stewart banjo serial number 6883. There appears to be a signature on the back side of the drum? I think it says "Paduah" Any idea how old this is and if it is valuable?

I tried to post photos. I think I'm doing it wrong

Thank you.  Does the signature mean anything?

Likely the owner, but not someone I have heard of.

I believe it is a Lady Stewart No. 2, but need to know if the head diameter is 9" to be certain.

Are you looking to get rid of it? I am about an hour away.

Actually, I'm thinking of repairing it and learning to play. But, it's been in the family for a long time... I think we are going to keep it.
