...and thanks for the tip. I'm surprised to find it's older than my kit! But not by too much. Good to know... The other thing I have learnt from this forum is that I should weigh it

Dude....that's awesome.

Wish I could come over there and hoist a few with you. Then we could both pose for some hammered pictures.

Will this help? I can take a face-on shot later if these don't do the trick.

These 14 hats came with the kit that was bought new in 1961 - the drums are 58 or earlier except for the floor - 6ply - made in 58 60 or 61.

I took these a few minutes ago.
