reuellis,I don't know anything about banjos, but I'm sure somebody on this forum will be able to help you. It would help to identify it, if you could post some pictures of your banjo.

Sorry, I can't help date it but that puppy is vintage.  The wooden coordinating rod (if you can even call it that) is interesting.  

Try posting at http://www.banjohangout.org/forum/ and see if you get any answers.  I'd love to know what you find out about it.

Yeah, that's an oldie.  Not a lot of records kepts around on some of these.  I'd check with banjohangout as MsWhat suggested, or with http://www.elderly.com http://www.gruhn.com

It's vintage.
