This is crazy!! Manuel Nunes, one of the originators of the ukulele, for this cheap?! If this is real then someone in the uke community is about to be VERY lucky!
Someone please win this and donate it to a museum!!! :eek:

It's probably made by Leonadro Nunes - his son - who made ukes for several US distributors in the early decades of the 20th century. Leonardo went on to put his own name on the labels by the time of WWI. But still has some historical value...
