    Its certainly possible that someone may have re chromed this drum which again seems unmarred, but for perhaps a labor of love? That's expensive unless you have the skill set to do it yourself correct? Your points are all well taken however. Especially the washers... If the drum were used and...

    Thanks all. You guys rock! Here are some of the many grommets used around the same era...some might be slightly older.. I've borrowed photos from the internet, so if any of these are yours and you object, please inform me so I can remove it... I thought it might be better to look at WFL drums...

    Thanks K.O. The height of the grommet looks flush/flat against the badge in your photo. Am I seeing that correctly or is there more of a curve to it? Without a doubt the grommet profile on my drum is quite different from yours... Thanks for chiming in. ...And very nice to see you here...

    Good morning Bijian, Can you be specific about what makes you believe its been re chromed? I'm not seeing any blatant signs and would think especially the interior of the drum reveal some sort of indication. You mentioned the lugs... however in looking at the drum in person I believe the...

    Thanks, I won't hold ya to it! Nor am I a plating or grommet expert, but man I'll tell you that there are some very passionate grommet experts out there who outright said the drum was a fake due to their observations... I think we can rule that out. At any rate, I took the drum off the market...

    Yes, will do and anything else you can think of, let me know. I'm going to take this thing apart.

    Haha, I wish you could see it in person too! This is really disturbing to me as I would love a definitive answer...

    Hi Mike, I was hoping you'd chime in. Yes, there was a misunderstanding. I was not inquiring about washer on the interior but the grommet profile as you stated. Now I'm back to being concerned and a little confused about this. In one of the above photos Speedy's third photo, and in one other...

    Bijan, thanks for your input. No offense taken at all. Although I've not been here in a long time, I've always been impressed by most members willingness to answering questions with examples... Much appreciated. In handling the drum I'm not seeing any signs of re-plating...But just to be sure...

    Looks like the same grommet different finish on my Silver Anniversary too.

    Excellent, so there we have it! Am I seeing correctly and can safely say these grommets are the same? Thanks Speedy.
