Hi,

what is your opinion of this frog? I don't see any markings on it but I am leaning toward it is a good one but just would like other opinions.

Thanks,
Del

At first glance looks ok, but IMO it is not ( IMO metal stud doesn't look right. Also the hole for stud in fastening strap isn't right).
Looks like main body is ok, but the fastening strap is not ( new made and added ), which means whole frog was re-sewn. Probably frog had cut off strap and somebody replaced it.

aside from a hole, the first thing that got my attention was a very STRAIGHT line stitching on the back.... more pictures maybe ? Overall it looks OK, but would be nice to see it in person
