Five-String Banjo

Description (Brief)
This banjo was made by an unknown maker in the United States around 1930-1940. It was sold through Sears, Roebuck and Co. catalogs, and is typical of the inexpensive instruments which became easily available at that time to musical enthusiasts through mass-marketing and mail order convenience.
