Lyon & Healy "Mystic" 5-string banjo, Circa 1890's

Lyon & Healy sold many lines of banjos, and the "Mystic" line was in the middle quality-wise.  This banjo sold for about $17 in 1897, and it is a fine playing banjo with a real ebony fingerboard and peghead veneer, a mahogany neck, and nice, tasteful pearl inlays.
