Superlative condition and exceptional sounding, early post Loar / transitional F-5 from early 1925. Fully original other than the inside edge of the F holes having been painted white by a previous owner, whose name can still be seen thru the treble side F hole. Original case in very good condition, the mandolin is near mint and sounds as good as many Loar signed instruments.
