Help with value

I have recently acquired a J Parslow banjo but not sure of value is there anyone who could help please.
I have done some research into the maker and worked out its about 100 years old and looks like an original case.
One piece of mother of pearl missing and obviously well played with.
Thanks if you can help that would be great.
Paul

The Bell Chimes

A pretty little tune - this is the Herbert J Ellis version (but with the Dobson intro).  Hope you like this one, Ian (our resident Bell Ringer)

Edit by Ian:

I have added a Music player for Carrie's recording.

Very nice indeed Carrie, and a nice sounding banjo too. You sound better than my Handbell Ringing Team…

Ragtime Century by David Miles

I came across a listing for this book by the late, great David Miles. Has anyone ever seen it? Is it just the right hand of the piano that he arranged? What about the left hand? Is it still available and where?See More
