Just a heads up on this one. I emailed the seller but no response. The listing says Baritone but the measurements he gives suggest tenor all over the place. Especially when Lyon and Healy didn't make a baritone. (If they did, it would be worth a bundle, since baris really didn't show up until the 50's)

Aloha Ukulelecowboy Mike,
It looks like a deal and early model, in good condition except the scratch on the back and sides and different pin....well the price has 5 days yet...sure to shoot dramatically at the end...I wouldn't ming having it..for sure and it really look like a tenor..are you thinking about it...thanks for sharing..MM Stan

Hey MMStan,
The seller changed the title to tenor. Better for collectors. It is a great model but I'm not interested. I'm keppingbmy eyes peeled for interesting baritones

Good luck if you bid.

At $650 BIN, it's a good price. Elderly has one in stock now at $800.

And a few months ago had this gorgeous Grand Symphony for 2k. Realty nice but nothing I could ever afford.
