I have what I believe is a 1953 Leedy Ludwig snare. Has a small stamp of 5307 and another stamp of 48838 which I believe is the model number. NOB rims. Shined up pretty well. Any insight on the 2 stamps is always appreciated from our gurus
Sorry. The system is having issues uploading additional photos

I Absolutely love the war time Leedy Dreadnaught's especially in the BDP
I saw a nice WMP at the CT Drum show but it was out of my price range. Maybe one day
Thanks for sharing

I have a thread on this drum already but thought I should feature it here for the record. March 1937 Leedy Dual Full Dress found in Australia.
