Yikes!! What a specimen, in black, full white pick guard. Probably 1932-ish. Here's a page to peruse. There aren't many in such fine shape knocking around these days.

Many will chime in here with more info. Some with vast experience in Gibsons of this era.

What could it sell for? 6K anyway at the very top of the market. Condition and originality will greatly effect that.
I may not be good lookin', but at least I ain't got no money.

Here's a shot of your L00, Leona. Maybe there's a shopper lurking. I saw that you still had the original tuners, too. Top is spruce. Love these...Posted Image

A beautiful guitar and my favorite variation of the vintage L-00: the 1932, tuxedo (black and white) version. I've got one just like it (on loan for the past year to a pro player in Nashville):

I recommend that you consign it to a major vintage guitar shop. Yes, you'll pay a consignment fee in the area of 20% of the sale price. But, otherwise, unless you know a lot about the guitar and the vintage guitar market, you risk selling for too little.

Thanks for posting here.
