    Optical illusions.
    The lightning and background color make it appear different. On darker background or changed lightning it would look tighter. Also looks like the pics were taken from some distance which optically "opens" the scroll as the back of the scroll will not interfere as much with the outline seen from front...

    Another new/old Loar in the HOUSE! This is the very early 1924 Lloyd Loar Rybka H-5 Mandola! This thing is like an F-5 Loar on Roids! Awesome tone, volume, overall voice is tops and one of two that I know of with the Flowerpot peg head inlay as all the others have the Fern inlay! I'll try and get my own pix of this one and Loar F-5 #75319 thats also my new/old Loar! Enjoy!

    A super-nice 1923 Loar was just listed at Morgan Music... a good-looking mandolin! Looks like an all-original closet queen...
