The Wizard Banjo Ukulele
instrument was featured recently for sale on a Ukulele web site.
There were a lot of unmarked American banjos that were sold by
department stores, catalogue sales outlets, etc. Some were marked by
the retailers. I believe that Wizard was a mark of Montgomery Ward, but
I got this info from Joe Bethancourt's site in an article
called "An Encapsulated History of Classic Banjo Manufacturers"
If you run a search for his site, it will be under the
"Miscellany" section. It has serial number lists for many
American makers. There is also a large section on British banjo
Home Page or Instrument List
