A new, old Harmony uke

Here are a few photos of my new, old Harmony uke. It is what Harmony called a tenor uke, model 685.

According to one who knows, the Harmony transfer on the headstock indicates a uke from the early 1950s.

It is of solid mahogany construction, has a 15 inch scale, and a wafer thin rosewood veneer on the fretboard. It should have four position markers, but one has dropped off mine.  The binding is white celluloid.

Some sound samples follow:
