I know this is a long shot, but I have an excellent condition Ludwig sky blue pioneer snare that I'd like to trade for a pre-serial number gold sparkle pioneer with nickel hardware.

Here are the specs of my drum:

Year: 1965
Hardware: Nickel
Hoops: Snare side - NOB; Batter - NOS
Muffler: White Felt
Condition Notes: Overall the drum is in gorgeous condition. It has absolutely no wrap fade and the nickel looks excellent. The drums is original other than heads and wires. The only damage to note would be that there is a small amount of corrosion on the inside of the batter hoop that can't really be seen when the hoop is on the drum.

I love my Pioneer, but I have a pre-serial downbeat and school festival in gold sparkle with nickel hardware and would really love have a matching pioneer for the collection.
Let me know if you want any other pictures. Mine is obviously the drum on bottom.
