Orpheum #3, 5 string banjo, S/N 9079, Circa 1915

This is one beautiful banjo, in my opinion.  Made mostly of mahogany, it has a deep maroon hue that is set off with multiple color laminations and fancy pearl inlays everywhere.  It also has a beautifully carved heel and, with the Orpheum raised tone ring system, plays and sounds just great.
