Hello, we founded a mandoline from Gibson. In an old intrument case, with original sticker and serialnumber, even old strings were in the case. The name of the first owner you can't read, but he was an Sgt. and the date 20.Oct. 45. Who can help us to found somebody, who can us say what worth it have or who knows anybody who will buy this beautiful discovery :rolleyes: ?

Thanks [confused]

You may want to post this in the http://forum.gibson....nd-information/ and add some detailed photos.

I don't think there were many models made in that year. I would like to see it.

Interesting piece - from what I can tell looking at the pics this is a Gibson A2 model with a 555xx serial number which suggests a 1919 shipment date. So this mandolin was made long before 1945. It looks to be in somewhat rough condition, so probably needs some work - which will have an impact on its value.
