Default Vintage snare drums to restore

Hello,

I'm looking for vintage snare drums (pre-70s) to restore. Leedy, Slingerland, Ludwig, Camco, Rogers or Gretsch.
Let me know if you have an old snare that needs to be restored or a project you can do.

Thank you

I've got a 14x10 radio king (50s) that has all or most of the hardware and was repainted horribly

I have a 1979 Corder 6.5x14 chrome over maple snare drum with most of the parts that I'm looking to get rid of. Same hardware as the Fibes drums of the 60's and 70's. Missing the throwoff and buttplate and the screws to mount the lugs to the shell. I have everything else. I know you said pre-70's, but it's a fantastic project drum nonetheless.

I will trade other Rogers of the same era for these drums. I have a 1960 14x14 Jasper shelled floor tom in Jet Black I am willing to trade as well as other Rogers drums. Contact me if you have either of these!

First of all thank you for all the offers.
In this moment I'm not interested in marching snares or modern ones.
Blair, could you send me pictures of the Ludwig Universal? Thank you
