    As far as I can tell, the instrument does not have wood friction pegs, and has the stamped Martin identification on the back of the head. Based on these two observations, I believe the instrument was manufactured between 1927 and 1931.

    What's it worth to a UKE player?

      Condition is everything and yours is very rough and has names engraved in it . So Having owned a vintage Martin guitar my opinion is monastery value would not be to high . Just my thoughts ,maybe someone else will chime in and say different .

      Actually, there are two name carved in the body of the instrument ... once of which is my Mother-In-Laws maiden name (Bassett). I believe the other name belongs to my Mother-In-Laws Grandparents ... which were Gypsies. The story is the Grandmother was adopted by the Gypsies ... and because the family was poor and had too many children to care for.
