1921 Gibson A2 Mandolin #63xxx


1921 manufacture date (traditional estimates)
1921 shipment date, according to Spann's Guide to Gibson
Mandolin, Style A2
Serial 63xxx
Factory Order number: 11825


Serial number in ebay listing is "may be 11825". Beat-up shape, headstock missing a chunk, seam separations, lots of wear on the face & some cracks. Truss rod cover on paddle headstock inconsistent with 1912, would make it a '21-24 ('21 most likely, 62200-69300 serial range. Guessed 63xxx). Has the proper Loar-style adjustible bridge for this period too. Screw eye fastened in peghead. Feaux alligator Chipboard case

DB- on a re-examination I realized the reported SN is most likely the stamp number
