    I've never seen a banjo from London before, especially a five string (although the 5th string tuner is missing). I don't know anything about your manufacturer, but I'd definitely say it's worth restoring. If you have a traditional instrument store nearby, take it in for an evaluation.

    Hi David:
    We did an interview with Lowell Levinger about banjos. You may want to contact him:
