First off we are not Martin or Ukulele experts, so, please feel free to ask any questions. We believe this is a “Style 0″ C.F. Martin Soprano Uke.With a cloth carrying case. We believe from our research, this is after 1935 to the early 1940’s. We see a small missing glaze spot on the top in the lower right corner, about the size of half our little fingernail. Everything we see says this is really clean and in great shape. It measures overall approx. 21″ by 6 3/8″ wide. GOOD LUCK!!
