S.S. Stewart "Champion" presentation 5-string banjo, S/N 14352, Circa 1894

This is a nice example of Stewart's finest cataloged banjo, his $125 "Champion" presentation banjo.  A number of these highest grade Stewart banjos have survived in good condition, perhaps because they are so evidently works of art and were passed down from generation to generation in families over the years.  This is the second fancy Stewart I have seen with pearl button tuners.
