Lot 1045 of 578: 1909 Vega Fairbanks Whyte Ladye five string open back banjo, nos. 26326 and 27881, with 11" skin and 27" scale, case *The earlier serial number stamped on this banjo suggests a manufacture date of 1909/10. In 1909 the revolutionary Tubaphone tone ring was introduced, and the option was offered to send instruments back to the factory to have the new device retro fitted. Hence the second serial number, which would have been anything up to a year later
