Default ID 4x14 Nickel over Brass Snare

I'm a bit embarrassed to ask, but in all my years of collecting, I've not run across a drum like this. At first glance it looks like Ludwig, but I'm not certain. Tension rods are replacements, snare butt is missing the tension plate and screws---and it might be a replacement, too.

I was thinking Leedy also at first but the air hole is a little strange being above the butt plate.

Just to clear things up. I finally identified it as a 1924-28 Leedy.
