Mandolin, Style F4
Serial 10926
Factory Order number: 1339


Black. 2 point body with 3-point style torch & wire peghead inlay. This is a transitional instrument from the 3-point shape. Note that the scroll ridge has more of a "tail" to it than the later ones would, and the early fancy "Torch & Wire" inlay on the peghead. Pickguard clamp is the "chin rest" style, or earliest type.
