I received this little beauty yesterday.

A 1920's Style O. Other than some playing marks on the top it's pretty much flawless. It weighs in at 9.5 ounces, and has a very sweet voice!

Congratulations, that is the nicest, cleanest example of a 20's Martin Style that I have ever seen.

Congratulations! Beautiful uke. Nice early example. I'm sure it's a pistol.

Just gorgeous. Is there an interesting story behind it or how you got it?

I wish there was Jenny. It did come from the family of the original owner to a shop where I purchased it.
