My name is***** have been dealing in and appraising musical instruments for over 40 years, and I can help you with this. These are nice quality banjos. Your banjo is a tenor. The market is getting better for 4 string instruments in general as young people have discovered ukuleles, tenor guitars and banjos. These are selling for $800-1200 at auction in good playable condition. Insurance value is $1500.

Thank you,


PS: My great grandmother was on the Keith circuit.
