    Yours must be the pics Ken posted recently. Mineral deposit marks on the lower bout. You are very lucky to make it yours.

    Here are a couple pics of your mandolin. Donít know if Ken sent these specific pics to you too. (Ken was building an Econo A for me and shared the pics of his progress on your mandolin.)
