    Re: Lyra and Vega vintage mandolins

    I like the Vega mandolin. Looks like a 201 model (this is mine).

    It looks like the original cloud tailpiece is missing?

    Mike's estimate for the Vega sounds right depending on condition.

    Re: The "Florida" ???

    I would think that Uttar Pradesh, home of the Taj Mahal, would be the most famous region frequently referred to as “U.P”.

    Google “U.P. Region” and see what comes up.
