Unfortunately it does not have any other distinguishing marks, dates or features. It is a 5 string banjo in really good shape. It may have been purchased by my Father in Law in the 1950's

It would be inrteresting to find out some information. I can send a photo if it would be helpful.
I am sorry for your wait. I missed this in my perusal of the boards.
These American Remo Weatherking banjos do show up at auctions Worldwide and do have value but their value is fairly consistant the last two years from Pennsylvania, the UK to Australia in the range of 175.00-280.00 depending on the condition, with or without a case..and the auction location. The location is impacting sales as there are quite a few that are fetching 50.00-100.00 as well so if you are looking at a sale, make sure that it is an auction with an instrument market or that you sell this on your own.
I hope this helps.
