Gibson PB-3 Plectrum ball-bearing. 1926 based on FON. 8482.

Points of note:

General marks and dings consistent with age. Please see photos.
The banjo looks to have been refinished on the backside of neck from volute down, on the exterior of the rim, and resonator.
I cannot see numbers in chalk or pencil inside the resonator.
Missing the resonator thumb screws / hex bolts.
Three of the Grover tuner ferrules are loose.
The Oettinger tailpiece isn't original to the banjo.

Sale of the Oettinger tailpiece should be ample to cover the purchase of a period Presto and resonator screws should the buyer choose to go that direction. Pick-up / inspection welcome in central Ohio. Shipped in hard case. I'll require insurance if shipping, I hope that isn't a deal breaker for you. Shipping cost to be covered by buyer. I have a FedEx account which typically gives us a better rate. Happy to send additional photos on request and chat by phone prior to purchase. It is important to me that you are happy with our exchange. Inspection and returns accepted. Shipping both ways to be covered by buyer for returns. Please view the photos and ask any questions prior to buying. I'm not an expert, but will help you discover any information you are seeking.
