Is that Broadway dated inside? I'm guessing 1936 or 1937?

OK, the results are in! We've had some good ones this year and it was close, but 1st price goes to Coopers Drums for best in show. Now play us out with some of that old time Bo Diddley. Take it away!

Here's the Shelley close up.
Three point strainer, original snares, the rubber grommet turned to dust the first time I threw the lever.
Needs a good polishing.

Oops....sorry, I missed the date mentioned in your earlier post. Nice drum! I guessed the date based on that version of the throw-off, which was only around for a few years.
