Beautiful and great sounding banjo!
I was just wondering why there are holes drilled in the flange.

Could that be for a different way to attach the resonator? I dunno, just hypothesizing.

Adding lights (don't ask...) was popular in the 20s, maybe the original owner decided to butcher it in that way..?

It's left over from the hex nut era. There are 4 holes with engraving around them. They were phased out.
