Gibson F2 Mandolin #7800


manufacture date (traditional estimates)
1909 shipment date, according to Spann's Guide to Gibson
Mandolin, Style F2
Serial 7800
Factory Order number: 264


Guessing on serial from the FON + features. The inalid guard puts it fairly certainly before 8200.. the tailpiece cover with no hole is post 4000.. our current thinking is that serail range is roughly this formula:

(fon * 20) + 2500

Seller notes a hole in the top (visible near PG), crack in neck heel, and some loose glue joints on the back. Also both large & small peghead scrolls are missing
