Just received this drum. I've wanted one for a long time. The date appears to read "FEB 19 1970" (2nd photo). Since I've never seen one of these apart, I have a question:

I put a Luddy cup washer to see if it might have come this way originally. In the 3rd photo, is this close to how it SHOULD look? The mounting screws are thicker than what I've seen before on Luddys.

Also, has anybody removed and flattened a badge before? Glued one?

Thanks for any info/assistance you can provide!

Thanks, that definitely helps. Do you recall if the hex bolts were the SAME SIZE as the lug bolts? The bolts I have are definitely thicker. I'm hoping the throw has not been re-tapped and enlarged.
