Will be right for any USA political convention. When was it born? 76 (44 years old); where was it born? Here it comes-BORN IN THE USA!!! The only thing that keeps this banjo from being marked "excellent" is the resonator edges. Other than that, it looks virtually unplayed-NO fretwear, NO wear on the back of the neck which is STRAIGHT, and the head looks unmolested. The strings and bridge are probably original.
Nice extras included are the 'alligator' chipboard case (probably original) and the elegant, woven 'Stars and Stripes' strap with leather ends in like new condition.
I have owned this banjo for over 20 years, I have never played it, and just 'put it away' as I have too many other things.
Ask any questions (about the banjo) that you may have.
