The gain looks aluminum. Was your aluminum Powertone seamed or seamless? Thanks!Jeff Burke alerted me of this after I found the 2nd one just like this one. He had some Powertones stripped to the brass so he could have some brassy models. The plating company called him up after he dropped off some shells and they said under the chrome was construction made of steel and and some were aluminum shells. Not brass. Why do you doubt that big business would want to skimp on production to save a few?
Thanks! It’s encouraging the eBay drum appears all original. As you may know, it has a blackout label but the picture is not clear. Similarly, probably a Dayton white felt but pic doesn’t reveal if mounting nuts are present. It’s nice that an anticipated weight exist to help confirm. Your insights and experience are valued. Thank you!The COB donor is a Cleveland. I took a pic of the seam. The other 2 pics are of the Dayton aluminum one that I found no seam.
