This Harmony model has a lot of charm and appeal. It would need some work to restore it back into musical service (new strings, newfret board), but it would make a great music collectible/memorabiliapiece as is. It is a circa. 1950s model, although no product numbers can be seen to verify an actual date of manufacture. There are no issues with the integrity of the wood, other then the ones noted.
NOTE: missing 2 strings & a there is a small spot on the plasticfret boardthat has broken off (could possible replace the part, if interested).
History:

The ukulele is a member of the guitar family of instruments; it generally employs four nylon or gut strings or four courses of strings.

Ukuleles are commonly associated with music from Hawaii where the name roughly translates as "jumping flea," perhaps because of the movement of the player's fingers. According to Queen Liliʻuokalani, the last Hawaiian monarch, the name means “the gift that came here,” from the Hawaiian words uku (gift or reward) and lele (to come).

The ukulele originated in the 19th century as a Hawaiian interpretation of the machete, a small guitar-like instrument related to the cavaquinho, braguinha and the rajao, taken to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants. It gained great popularity elsewhere in the United States during the early 20th century, and from there spread internationally.

The tone and volume of the instrument varies with size and construction. Ukuleles commonly come in four sizes: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone.
