If anyone is interested, there is currently an A. Weaver built Clifford Essex, 15a Grafton St. W. for sale on Gumtree.com. It is in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, UK and is £300. It has been on there for 25 days.

I've emailed the seller for details of it's condition, but have not had a reply yet. I have decided not to buy it as I'm sticking to the zither banjo.

Kind regards, Ian.

These are great banjos but were not built by Weaver.

And here is the other CE...

I am no expert but the 22 fret neck might mean it is a 10.5 inch rim.

WEAVER / NOT a 100 %  ' rule  but usually

11 brackets , each side means 10 1/2   or 11

12 brackets , each side , means 11 1/2  or 12       inches ' pot
