Here is what I know about this uke

There is a decal on the headstock - K and K, New York 3. There are no ther markings anywhere else on or in the instrument. This K and K baritone ukulele dates between 1943 and 1963.
The US post office implemented single digit codes for large cities in 1943.
The 5 digit zip code was implemented in 1963. So "New York 3" dates the instrument between 1943 and 1963.

Solid mahagony body, no cracks or damage. There is some crazing in the finish and there is a tiny chip out of one of the neck dot markers..
Plays easily and has a nice tone to my ears.

$175 + shipping
Comes with the original GEIB case

Do you have a sound sample or a video with the uke being played?

That's a pretty mellow, sweet sounding bari! Solid mahogany....this is a decent deal, love the tone.

Thanks, I agree, it is a decent deal for a nice uke.

I'll try to make it a better deal, $175 + shipping via UPS - CONUS.
