Default gretsch ssb bearing edge

Hi guys, I'm a bit of a vintage newbie so I just want to double check on the bearing edge of this 70s SSB kit I've just obtained. I've done quite a bit of research but have a hard time finding clear pictures of bearing edges.

From my untrained eye these are either SLIGHTLY rounded or even look uncut? Certainly not the modern 30 degree bearing edge i'm used to seeing.

Any help would be appreciated.

"Slightly rounded" is a good description, especially if the drum is a mid to later SSB. The 30 degree didn't start until the 80's I believe.
Never play it the same way once.
