1880s A Tilley banjo value

Would anyone have an idea of a half decent A tilley 5 strings value . One for sale here in Canada for 350 canadian. it had the first five frets replaced with a brass plate otherwise not bad. thinking it may be a good player for classic.

Guage 20 Nylon Strings

Hi! Can anybody help please? I have trawled the internet for guage 20 nylon strings and can't find ANY! Nylon strings are hard to find and Andy banjo used to sell singles but no guage 20s anymore. Where have they gone? .... as part of a set or on their own they seem the best to me for 1st and 5th string Classic playing, so any help would be great!

"You are right but it's more fun to make mismatches. Eno can be the Galileo of the banjo. Grimshaw can be the Soupy Sales of the banjo. Cammeyer can be the Howdy Doody of the banjo. ........."
