What is this..??!! :shock:

Cone and biscuit etc..

I got a feeling that it could be some kind of early reso-banjo prototype from J. Dopyera..??
The holes in the sides looks kinda like the ones on the really early pre-production tricones..

Anyone knows more about this thing..? :D

The homemade wood nut on that makes me cringe.
