For Sale: Restored Banjo Looking for a new Home with case and music books

It is in excellent shape and sounds great.

Open Back Banjo with a Dowel Stick securing the neck to the rim
Neck at Nut: 1-3/8"
Scale Length: 28" [typo corrected]
Rim Size: 11-1/4"
Rim Type: Spunover Brass Rim
Head Diameter: 11"
Head Type: Mylar
Crown Height: 2-1/4"
Reinforced Fingerboard (for steel strings)

*John Calhoun (musician & instrument maker/repairer at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago)
restored this banjo for me in the 1980s. John said that although he was not 100% certain, based on his
knowledge and experience with banjos, he felt that this banjo was a Dobson. The dowel stick that fastens
the neck to the rim has the serial number 1437 stamped into it

I'd like to find a new home for this banjo where it will be played and bring joy to both players and listeners.

This banjo comes with a like-new carrying case (hard) and three banjo music books:

Tenor Banjo Method (Mel Bay)
Encyclopedia of Banjo Chords (Mel Bay)
Classical Banjo (Al Jeffrey)
