Anybody out there recognize this one?

It's obviously a banjo peghead overlay that was never installed. It's mounted on ebony, and the holes do not go through. The white binding on the edge covers the ebony from the edge view. The dark border and dark areas between pearl and abalone are tortoise celluloid; the creamy areas are ivoroid.

I've wondered for years what banjo this fits. The general outline is similar to a Stewart, but I've never seen Stewart use anything remotely like this inlay motif. Lots of other companies used this shape as well, and this overlay has a "production" look to it.

Any ideas? contact me
