    Hi guys, post nugget images in this thread please, and serial numbers too if you can. I've started a Nugget collection at the Mandolin Archive

    Here's one to start things off, #94 which I should have in my grubby little hands not long from now..

    *oops*, it's #91. Updated pictures too!

    The serial number of my F5 Nugget (2001)is #237. I am trying to post pics that do it justice. It has a beautiful one piece back.

    I think I figured out how to post pics. So here goes for the back of the Nugget 237.

    I used to own this beauty. It's changed hands a couple times lately and I don't know who owns it now. It is one of the most beautiful mandolins I've ever seen. Workmanship was flawless. Binding appears to have been bent around the points. How did he do that? Serial #198

    Marvelous! The not-so-long-lost older sister/brother of my #233. It's a keeper.

    Thank you,Dan B. for including my Nugget #223 in the Archives. I hope someone submits the abalone-bound Nugget that has the female-figure and moon inlay in headstock! All of Nuggets mandolins are works of art IMHO;but that one must certainly be the crown jewel.

    Dan, if you could find Ome #1 & 2, you would have 2 of Mikes first mandolins. #1 was an all-black F. #2 was a sunburst A, the prototype for Tims, and a real monster. I know, because I was the first owner. Should have never let it get away.

    Hey Jim? Did Bill McCay have that one for a while? Heck maybe he still does...I know that he used to play one like you are describing....Ome black top.
    Yup

    I don't know, but the #1 F was all black, not just the top.

    I'm working with Mike on the archives- expecting to get a huge pile of information from him eventually

    The Tim O'Brien Nugget is (According to Mike) #3, though Tim calls it #2 on his site. There were a couple other prototypes as well.. hope to get images and sort those out!

    I remember that he took pictures of Ome #2 the day I picked it up in 1975.
