Hey Kenny, congratulations on picking up that kit...I had a sneaking suspicion it might end up in your collection

If you don't mind my asking, which of the grommets is the correct one for that kit?
I think I see three different ones, and nothing on the 12.
Just wondering.

Hello Lee
Thank You for the reply
The Noble lettering used for badges is simply some kind of off-white plastic material
that has been stamped out and then glued somehow to the wrap
the grommet on the floor tom appears to have a small disc of this same material backing it
while the other drums have only the grommet or nothing at all
to answer your question. I am guessing the floor tom was the original intended grommet deal
Not sure how they ended up as they are
I was somewhat bewildered by that myself
but I have learned a good measure of acceptance when it comes to these old survivors

As mentioned, the seller was an inflexible SOB, unwilling to bend about the shipping. I can't be bothered with guys like him.
