very Vintage extra Old BANJO W A Cole's Eclipse
This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2011-07-05)
Price : US $355.00
This little feller has 16 frets and room for 4 strings. I'm not sure what I've got here. I will do some research and report back. The Cole's Eclipse was patented in 1894. I'll borrow a camera and swap out my blurry photos for clearer images.
Have a great night

What we got here, is a Tenor with serial number 6979. The condition of this rare treasure is not Mint. Somewhere along the way, someone attached a resonator mounting piece of hardware. (see blurry photo) My understanding is that these were intentionally open-backed. The rim has some paint chipped and a bit of wood separation splittery (photo coming soon) I'll be back

I see no option to swap my blurry photos for sharpers. Oy

The head has a glued little split near the bottom-right peg. The head has a little glued cracky split coming down from the top-right peg at the edge of the inlay. Below the bottom-left peg (towards the fretboard) I see another little glue-blob of primitive repair. There's a nick near the nut on the fretboard.
Maybe I can post a link to the better photos.
I shall return...
