Orpheum mandolin banjo
Hey all. I just purchased a cool old Orpheum mandolin banjo, and was wondering its aproximate age. It says "Made by Rettberg and Lange- New York City". Also says "Patented" followed by the number- 724888. I realize some pics would be helpful, and I'll try and get some up. It has some very cool inlay work. It's not totally original, as the bridge, and head are newer. Anybody got any ideas as to its age? Thanks in advance.
