Interesting flat top with a diamond-shaped hole.

Interesting instrument. Looks like it has some water damage though.

It looks like it may have had some of the dark wood overlay, like what is by the neck heel, down on the end pin end of the back. Looks like it might have peeled off exposing the bare wood underneath. Interesting mandolin.

"Exquisite workmanship on headstock scroll"?
It's kind of cool but, I don't know. The binding colors are really all over the place. Hope someone has a good time with this little pearl.
