get some pictures and then ask MM Stan to help you....might not be the prices you are looking for but Stan usually has a good idea on old ukes....

I think this is probably the most comprehensive site for what you need:

http://www.ukuzoo.com/

Terry is another one of those displaced Louisiana natives. He's a member here - I forget the UU name - he hasn't been on in awhile. Still, as he says:

126 brands
74 makers
2845 photos

and these are predominantly vintage instruments.

I've had some luck on Google Images with the right search terms. Love that Antebellum site.
