It's a desirable snare drum at any rate. '62 or '63 most likely with that badge and the bat muffler. Muffler felt should be red and the hoops would usually be brass.
The Man has spoken! You're better and more informed about Ludwig drums than any encyclopedia. I'm always impressed with that data base you carry around in your head. You might want to write a book and get it all down so that future generations can benefit from it.

Pinch Anna for me....

Too many great drums to list here!
