Looks like one of those Korean Hondo dulcimers, under a different name.  Not great, but not bad.  Worth maybe $50 total -- you can find them for that on Ebay.  Better than the rest listed there.

I just looked and I have a Global Tear Drop model.  It needs a new nut though.  Okay.  That probably didn't come off just right...I wasn't talking about me!

Global was, I believe, a Korean company known for their cheap knock-offs of Gibson guitars in the 60s.  What you may have found is a pretty good dulcimer.  Is it hourglass or teardrop?  I've got one of those Korean teardrop knock-offs of the Magic Mountains that sounds really good and plays nice as well.

A pic or url would help us advise.  :)

Ozarklady, can you post the URL so that we can look at it.  I've never heard of Global so I'm extremely sceptical of this offer.
