Comments:

Stamped on back: “F” and a crown. 4-piece table, 2-piece back, both without purfling. Soundholes very narrow, with no curl at upper eyes; lower eyes are above lower bout corners. Rosette. Neck angled back sharply, short, and has no frets in 1972 photos (though fretted when seen on display by J. Moran, 6/03).
