    Default Gibson Mandolin Strings

    Just curious about how old these would be.

    Not sure what that photo on the bottom of your post has to do with your question. I would guess the strings are 1950s-1960s.

    It's from another post. I tried to delete it but wasn't sure how. Thanks

    This may or may not help to answer the question. However, the packaging looks identical. I got these guitar strings new in 1967.

    I took it out for you. My guess would be 60's by the way.
