Default Fun little project, a Regal Tiple

When reading online, there is not much information on the Tiple instrument. I just got one of these things to restore (bridge pulling up and a couple other problems). It is a Regal Tiple from Chicago, but the thing is I can't find any information on this model. All of the other ones on Google and eBay have a slotted headstock. This does not. So I was wondering the history / what year this is?

Thanks a lot!

Interesting, Regal was also a maker of Ukuleles and Resonators. I hope you can get it playable.

I don't know anything about the instrument, but that's a cool photo. Is that a digital backdrop, or is it an actual wooden surface?

If it is real, is that a flat surface the instrument is lying on, or is the instrument standing up on a horizontal surface (floor) and leaning against a vertical surface (wall)?

After viewing the photo on a pc monitor instead of my phone, I can now see that the backdrop is a horizontal and a vertical surface. I'm guessing that it's photo shopped.

BTW, I found a web page loaded with info about the instrument, but I don't feel like posting a link.
