    Default Stella mandolin ID help needed

    I have a mandolin that I am looking to sell online but before I do Iíd like to learn more about it. This came from an estate I am helping liquidate so I donít know much about the original owner. Attached are some photos of the instrument and any info this community can provide are much appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Looks like you are helping with an estate with some low end mandolins. The Stella brand has been owned and produced by a few different companies. All of them are low end. As with the comments on the Kay, under $100, probably under $50 is a fair price of everything is in decent shape.

    This Stella was made by Harmony -most likely in the 1960s. It's all there and may be playable but it would need somebody with some mandolin experience to tune it up and check that it plays okay- although it may well do. However, it is another entry level flat back mandolin of a sort that is commonplace and not worth much as already mentioned.

    These fail to sell regularly on Facebook. Do a happy dance if you can get anywhere near $75.00 for it. I think I got $50.00 for the last one I had.
