A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
Is anyone bidding on this?
I'll throw in some cash via PayPal to help if the goal is to scan and post on this site.
I would hope the winner would share instead of hiding it in a stack of moldering paper to eventually turn to dust.
Hi Keith, congrats and Happy Birthday!
Your announcement of sharing makes me feel like it is all of our birthdays!!
I am both excited for you and your generosity to share. This stuff is too important not to preserve forever in infinite copies.
Joel, I scanned the banjo related pages (which is all I have) of the 1928 catalogue and they appear on pages 47and 48 of the photo section.

Do you have a 1928 Catalog? Would you be willing to scan and share? I would love to see it.

this catalog seems to be prior to the 1928 ' one
the concert grand is priced 20 £ ( 100 $ ) in the 1928 ' catalog
Last night a super great guy named Don Milne (who also builds banjos) scanned a CE catalog for us all to share.
I think this might be the same or near the same era as the pages that Richard scanned. It is a nice and clean copy and the cover was scanned in color. He did a great job.
It is not early as the subject of this discussion but still pretty cool.
