Bacon & Day Silver Bell No. 3 tenor banjo, Circa 1923, S/N 11519

This is an early Silver Bell with a round-hole flange.  The No. 3 was the top of the line at this time, with all gold-plated hardware, a bound peghead, and a nicely carved heel.  B&D Silver Bell banjos were, and are, among the most sought after jazz banjos of all time.
