For Sale: Bacon and Day Silver Bell No. 1 Plectrum Banjo (sold)






Bacon and Day Sultana Silver Bell Plectrum 4-String Banjo with case This fine 1923 through 1931 B&D Silver Bell No.1 plectrum, is in good condition and features a straight neck with the fingerboard and 22 frets showing very minimal wear. The banjo is all original except the drum head which has been replaced. The tuning pegs are planetary and fully functional. All MOP inlay is in excellent condition. All chrome hardware throughout is brilliant, blemish/corrosion free, and looks new. Having a 90 year history, some cosmetic issues are in evidence: the resonator edge at the knee mute shows finish wear; the resonator back has no markings left by belt buckles, etc.; the neck finish has gone from gloss to satin; the peghead is not missing lacquer over the MOP and has no dings at the top and near the 4th string tuning peg. The original case and interior cloth cover reflect age and use, but is structurally sound and able. Additional features of this banjo include it's big voice 28 hole flathead tone ring, knee mute, and unique resonator back with edge and center circles in relief.
