Just wanted to show this off for my buddy. Jack Lawton did some cleaning up on this for him. It also needed a badge and muffler. Lucky guy, he found this about 20 years ago in a second hand shop for either $50 or $100. He doesn't quite remember.

Here's the crazy part. Another guy in the same community has the rest of the kit. I don't know how the snare got separated from the kit, but wouldn't it be something if it could all be brought back together?

Lol! Always cracked me up about the gloves. Bun E told me the story about that wrap and why, but it's lost in the fog.
But you can remember how many days Ringo missed school in the 5th grade!

Thats a treasure for sure

Which is more valuablr, the snare or the rest of the kit? It would be cool to see them reunited.

I sure would love to hear the story of the Ludwig Top Hat and Cane wrap and the two right handed gloves.
