Good luck with your finds - especially anyone willing to get to grips with the mandolin-banjo (or banjo-mandolin, if you like). The mb is a great instrument, and you can pick up a decent playable instrument for a sensible price, even today. Many mandolinists of yesteryear played the mb for extra volume and projection. Some folk think it rowdy - but you can play a sweet air on the mb - if you know how to play, that is.
Good luck again! I love my Vega tubaphone (1912-ish).
