Pollmann banjos

In case you haven't seen a Pollmann ivory patent stamp from the turn of the century, here it is. Technically, it's iveroid; no elephants were harmed. This is on the fretboard where the banjo is often scooped out on open backs. 100 years old. Natural skin head. Nylon strings, one wound, and one fishing line. It's the cat's meow!
