Excellent 1920's Globe Banjo Mandolin - Lots of MOP & Needs Skin

I went to a pretty good estate auction this last weekend and managed to score a few good items to add to the shop for your shopping pleasure. This appears to be a very nice banjo mandolin and although I could not find an exact match I think I have a good one here at a very nice price to make a shop visitor kind of happy I hope. It measures a hair less than 25" long and the body is about 11 1/2" wide it is also a heavy banjo and weighs in at 7 lbs. The case is in pretty good condition but will needs a little glue on the green liner but it does not smell bed and all the hardware is in fine working order and very much appears to be the original from the twenties matching case. i pictured the patent dat and the mother of pearl is in good condition with just a few missing tiny sections the body appears to be in great condition with no water damage and all nice and straight and all the hardware is present and fully working. It is marked the pictured Globe and could be a very good banjo for a alert shopper I had to pay well for it against a few other dealers and for now just put it in shop with a modest mark up. I tried to picture it well to both show it off and answer some questions and price things for good value to encourage a quick sale and hopefully another happy customer. Thanks for your time and interest and the nice first three years on Ruby Lane.
