This is in excellent vintage condition.
It is coming from my personal collection of snare drums.
I'll let the pics speak for themselves.

The reason I am selling this is that I have two of them and I need to make room for some new additions.

Price is $350 plus $20 shipping

Let me know if you have any questions.

Very nice! If I didn't have 2 already (1968 KS Badge and 1976 B/O Badge) I would be all over this. Very fair price on a great drum.

Ken, nice specimen. Are those scratches or dings on the muffler panel to the right and the butt plate panel to the right?

Very clean although I see a scratched badge and a few other scuff/scratches on the shell, muffler panel. You did say mint right?
When you look at the badge straight on you do not see these. I used a very high quality camera and very closeup that will pick up the slightest blemish..even beyond what the eye will normally see unless you looked for something. When I saw the pic I went back to look at the snare and put my eye again the badge and there were a few hairline marks but from 3 feet aware these are imperceptible. Not trying to mislead anyone.
I never noticed the mark on the badge until I saw the picture.

There is one small scratch on the muffler panel which I took a closeup of.

Possibly I should not have described as mint but the snare is almost 50 years old and I took this vintage condition into consideration
