Bacon & Day Silver Bell No. 5

  • Excellent Condition

Silver Bell No. 5’s are one of the rarest of the Bacon models. We have only seen two in over 40 years. This example appears to be original apart from refinish and replating and tuners. Features a five piece maple neck w/ delicate heel carving, unusual peghead shape (only found on No. 5 banjos), engraved “vine” pearl inlaid peghead overlay. Rim assembly features gold-plated and engraved metal parts, perforated Silver Bell tonering, nickel plated armrest (engraved w/ B&D Silver Bell No. 5). F-hole resonator has fine engravings on back. Small finish crack on interior rim wall beneath dowel stick. Extremely rare.
