I've had this for a couple of years and had some repairs done to the bridge. Parts of it were also refinished. It's in great shape, except that a couple of the tuners tend to slip and it probably needs restringing as I have a hard time keeping it in tune. I've added two strap buttons.

Comes with the original cloth case. $275 plus shipping.

Doug, you're a fast draw and beat me to it. If you don't buy it, I will.

This is actually from 1920 or earlier. 5-7-9 fret markers only lasted until about 1921. The bridge might be original, the earlier ones are more square but it's tough to tell from the photos.

Tigershark, you are correct I believe. It was just sold, thanks.
speaking of vintage ukes though. I have listed this a few times without any takers. If someone is interested for the same $275 please let me know. A luthier here in Portland believes it is an original Nunes (no label inside). I find the frets a little too small but otherwise, it's fine.

It is. In the meantime, I am dropping the price on the Nunes to $175 to give this and it a bump.

You said earlier that it was sold. Is it still for sale both here and on EBay? Pardon my confusion.

my fault. apologies. the martin has been sold (but is now for sale on ebay) The nunes is still here. Perhaps I should just start a separate thread for it.
