This is an unmarked, open back, tenor banjo made by Slingerland, likely in the 1920s.
This banjo is unmarked, but the inlay pattern and hardware make it almost certain that it was made by Slingerland in the 1920s.
This is a good sized banjo for a smaller person. It has some nice wood purfling around the edge of the rim. It has a vintage vellum (skin) head on it, which gives it a warm, plunky sound. The tuners are original friction tuners. (A new head can be added for $50 and geared tuners for $75).
