I just found this sweet banjo and I want to know all about her.
The guys at Guitar Wishes think she is a Vega Ragtime Tenor. Could she possible be a Slingerland?
My research is allll over the place.
Thanks for your expertise in advance!

More photos would be good but I think you are possibly correct with Slingerland.

What is the diameter of the head (measure inside the tension hoop)?

Looks Slingerland to me.

From the pictures it looks like a Slingerland. Measure the rim across the bottom. Slingerland banjos were 10 3/4" in diameter. Most of them had twenty brackets as well.
