Victory Ukelele

Regal Manufacturing Company

The victory ukelele remains among the most covetted of homefront collectibles. Manufactured by the Regal Manufacturing company, to get one during wartime you had to sell so many seeds and pay a dollar or two. It is likely there were retail sales in addition. The body is Red, White and Blue with V icons and drawings of squadrons of planes. Visions of homefronters strumming the ukelele with fond thoughts of family and loved ones fighting far away are integral. It measures 6 3/4"L x 21"W upright. It is quite fragile and easily scratched. Few are known to have survived. In 1999, 2 are known to have sold for $1000.00 each. Higher offers abounded.

Estimated value: $1000.00 +
