Well my buddy picked this up from a garage sale and I'm a little curious to what it really is or if it has any value. There are no markings, serial # etc. at all, not even on the inside. It looks as though someone at one time may have refinished it cuz the stain seems to have bled onto the MOP headstock a little and the side of the nut as well. Tuners are Grover replacements but there is an ivoroid type tunig button in the storage part of the case that may have been original. Note the first pic, there are a couple of Gibson string envelopes next to the case which have Kalamazoo, Mich. stamped on them so i imagine it's got to be from the 60's or earlier. I'm clueless 'bout dem banjos so I hope someone can help out. Thanks.
