I have recently been given a Lap steel Guitar (Mid to late 1930's)
that belonged to, my Grandmother.
She was born in 1920 and got this Guitar (See attached Pictures) when
she was 16 or 17

I was wondering if anyone can give me any info regarding the Maker and
the approximate value of it. (No I'm not selling it)
It still has its original case. Also the original slide and what I
call the moveable Nut piece.

The Only info on the Guitar is the Name Hawaiian Club on a sticker on the
Head Stock. And it has Two numbers stamped inside the body.
The first which I assume is the Serial # 3310H900 and a second smaller
red coloured stamp F.39.

Any help and info you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

It's a student level built by Harmony; F39 designates year of make. Not a great deal of value attached. Guitars of similar vintage and quality -- Oahus, Supertones, Regals -- sell in the $100-200 range.
