Rugg and Jackel inlays?

Those inlay are pre-cut. I don't know where they came from originally (maybe Germany or Italy), but were sold in the US by Vitali Imports in Southern California. I imagine the owner either did the inly him- or herself, or had it done.
And I’m a very proud owner! I have another Folk Roots I treasure as well. Thanks for the information. This one is D50, #43741

Yes Oct 26 1982 the second one made that day. We did not put those inlays there. Thanks for showing, It makes me proud!
Hi That looks like a D50ST, can you see a label inside? If so , what are the numbers?
Thanks for that. I will contact him and ask if he did inlay. My best guess is “inlay decals” of abalone. They are flush with the wood.

@gstringer, is that inlay or decals? Looks pretty cool either way.
If they are decals, anyone could have put them on. If it's genuine inlay, you might contact @Howard-Rugg , who is a member here and who resurrected Capritaurus Dulcimers a couple of years ago.

Recently acquired a Folk Roots teardrop dulcimer. Can’t find any similar images on the internet. Anyone seen one of these with inlay/decals?
