S.S. Stewart "Thoroughbred" No. 2, S/N 14694, Circa 1894

Either Stewart mis-labeled this banjo or someone requested a very odd version of a classic Stewart model.  The banjo is identical in dimensions to Stewart's "Specialty" banjo with a 10.5" head and a 18" neck, but with a Thoroughbred tag and label.  Nevertheless, it has a nicely carved heel and a pearl inlay pattern different from any other Stewart I have seen.
