ORPHEUM No1 Tenor Banjo (currently setup for GDAE tuning).

Birdseye maple pot and neck, rosewood (I think) fretboard, in very good condition.
Archtop tone ring, 11.25" pot, 21" scale.
As far as I can tell, it's all original except for the tailpiece.
The inlay (pearly stuff) all looks good and seems secure and flush with fretboard and peg-head.

The only thing not in very good condition on the banjo is that at some point someone glued a flat rectangle (1/4" thick) of maple to the back bottom end of the dowel. I'm not sure why this was done, as I can see no cracks/breaks in the dowel...it looks fine to me. You can see it in one of the photos.
