Hello everyone,

I picked this up a little while ago, and just got finished with the restore.
Overall, it turned out very nice.

Blue/Olive badge with serial number 1365144

I know some of you serial number experts can give me an approximate year.
I'm thinking 1975? but would like to know, if you can take an educated guess. No date stamp.

Date stamps had essentially stopped in later 1971.

I am writing an article about why 1976 is so popular for a date estimate for blue/olive badge drums. In your case, I believe it is correct. In most cases it is not. I need to show the draft to a few people first, but I hope to publish it soon.
