I would personally call him Woody, but you may want something a bit cuter, I don't know.

That's a banjo ukulele -- if you replace the missing tuner, I wouldn't be surprised if it fetches $100 - $150 on ebay not knowing anything else about it. They are pretty desireable little ukes!

EDIT: replace the tuner . . . then sell it to me!
BE HAPPY

No-name banjo ukulele were very prevalent during the 20s and 30s. Quite often, they would be sold with no name or logo (as were many mandolins at the time). Check the inside rim or the inside of the resonator, but I doubt you'll find anything. A fine appraiser might be able to date it, but not us (without holding it, I have nothing). I'd recommend you at least find a date on it before you sell it, and be sure to get a letter of appraisal if it's from a valuable time period.

Depending on the time period, replacing the tuner may either increase the value or drastically decrease it. You would want to consult an appraiser for information on that. If you do decide to replace the tuner, then you would want to go to a fine luthier that can replace it with extreme proficiency and skill. There's more to replacing a tuner on an antique instrument than just finding one that fits.

Edit: and the same thing applies to any modification of it (strings, cleaning, etc). Some antiques are worth more when dirty than when clean. Consult an expert before you make any extreme decisions.
