    What years did Ludwig offer these heads?

    2nd type pointy badge and serial number (968xxx) are ~'72-~'73 per Rick Gier's dating guide. Other expected attributes of that drum would be a large knob tone control and P-85 black face, 12-hole, strainer.

    Slingerland TDR or maybe Buddy Rich

    Careful, the three air vents alone does not verify a Buddy Rich model. Several snare models featured the three air vents including the Concert King, Spitfire and post Buddy TDR's.
