clifford essex Paragon

I have the opportunity to buy what im told is a genuine 1913 Clifford essex Paragon 5 string banjo but to me the rim and resonator looks very different to what I understand the 2 types of paragon to be, but could this be because it is a much older model though im rather sceptical? ill add more pics when I get them…See More
