Vintage 12 String Mandolin ?1800s Very Interesting!!

I am happy to offer for your bidding pleasure, this interesting, vintage mandolin.

I personally have never seen one with this kind of tuning mechanism.

The tuners are in excellent condition, as is the fret board. Overall, the body is in excellent condition as well. T is wonderful inlay around the face. Although, the back seems to either have warped a little, which prevents it from sitting properly on the body, or it had been repaired inadequately.

Manufactured by Joseph S Castanha and Sons in Boston, I suspect this piece is very rare.

This mandolin will make a great addition to any vintage collection.

Thanks for Looking!!
