Nice, looks like you have a Shrine ukulele (http://www.fretboardjournal.com/blog/catch-day-circa-1928-wasburnlyon-healy-shrine-ukulele) there!

Well! I've always wondered how they sound. How does it sound? They bring a pretty penny on EBAY. Does this one have a story? Or you bought it without knowing what it was?

It sounds really nice and full. Mom said her mom's sister Sally bought it back in the day in Chicago. At some point she gave it to Grandma for whatever reason and then when Grandma passed, it became moms. Mom can play a tune or two on it..

That is one very, VERY cool instrument! And it appears to be in great condition.

Cool uke!

Looks like this one to me: http://www.garysguitars.com/catalog/1930-washburn-%E2%80%9Clyon-healy%E2%80%9D-shrine-ukulele-koa

Lyon and Healy made great instruments back in the day. Their mandolins are prized for orchestral work.

Cool looking uke! At first I thought it was a Balaliaka!

From the pictures it looks like ognib's uke is in better condition than the one at garysguitars.com, and it has the case, which is probably pretty hard to come by. I would say it was a score.

Agreed; yes, it looks to be a whole step better in grade. But, that was the only one I could find on the net.
