5 1/2" by 14" WMP 8-lug
Strainer, adjustable butt, and muffler all functional.
The last of my Gretsch orphans; I'm tempted to keep it...but I don't want to build a hoarder's warehouse!
Round badge with grommet (not sure what year; I'm not a Gretsch expert).
Appears to be original except the heads, snare wires and snare cord.
One nut missing from the butt plate (I secured the screw and washer so it wouldn't be lost. The washer was inside the drum when I got it, but no nut.)
Some wrap lift at the seam; I did not try to glue it down.
See photos, please ask questions or for even more more photos.
I'm thinking $400 shipped east of the Mississippi and $415 to the west.

Thanks for the specs; no paper tag nor remnants of one, unfortunately.
