Magnets don't stick to any supras. They're either aluminum or brass. Based on the pitting and the badge, this drum is almost certainly aluminum.

After looking closely at the photos, this drum was originally a Super Sensitive, as evidenced by the open holes in the shell where the strainer rod was previously located, and both interior backing plates from the Super Sensitive mechanism are still present. And if you look closely at these open holes you will see the shell is definitely aluminum (Ludalloy).
Both the throw off and butt end do not appear to be Ludwig. Good luck with the sale.

Thanks I didn’t realize that it might be a SS. Either way it is a great sounding drum. Please ask all questions, I believe in full disclosure on everything I am selling.
