 This item is a small fretless banjo probably made in the 1880’s.  It has a 9 3/4 inch diameter head with an overall length of 31 1/2 inches The pot has the remnants of some blue velvet outer covering.  The brackets and nuts appear to be original.  There is no name on the banjo but it does appear to have some of the features of an early Dobson or Buckbee.  I especially like the peghead as a Dobson shape, but there is no provenance at all.  The neck is warped at the nut but it is playable as is with a low bridge height.  It has a walnut veneer on both neck and peg head.  The bridge, nut, tailpiece, tuners, and head are all replacements.
