The banjo does have a few small marks and some patina. There are a few small marks on the upper edge of the fretboard, a tiny mark on the upper edge of the peghead, a mark on the back of the dowl by the neck brace, and a few small marks on the pot.
I have a "tobacco" bison non-cradle banjo strap from Lakota Leathers in excellent condition that matches the tones of this banjo nicely which I could include for $50 if the buyer would like.
