    I have the info from Pfeijsier‘s book. If you have additional information or insight about this mandolin, please share. Thank you!

    Hi Ray -
    Thank you for responding. The photo is of a friend’s who will restore it for himself, but I can still add some pictures I took. I am wondering more about more general information - for example, how many were made, was it the top of the line at the time etc.

    Author's name is Hubert Pleijsier. I believe that is was the top of the line for 1896-1905. Unless you can find some ledgers from Lyon & Healy at that time I doubt you will find how many were made. Hubert's book is pretty thorough. It would be nice if there was any more info out there, but i sort of doubt it.
