1921 manufacture date (traditional estimates)
1922 shipment date, according to Spann's Guide to Gibson
Mandolin, Style A
Serial 68549
Factory order number unknown


Brown top finish with dark back and sides. Its a late 1921 so it has the truss rod in the neck. No logo in the peghead as built, unbound fingerboard, original Gibson label inside. All finish and hardware are original except possibly for the truss rod cover. Shows some playing wear as well as a few nicks and dings, but overall a nice solid mandolin. Repaired back edge seam behind the tailpiece is barely noticable. Plays easy with the great round hole tone
