Hi Chris
to the forum !
What a beautiful kit. I am sure one of our Gurus can give some more insight into closer dating of the kit. I have a 1940's Leedy 6 1/2" x 14" Broadway Series - Red Sparkle that looks almost identical other than the badge. I would recommend popping off a head to see the date stamp on the inside. Here's a pic of one in a Leedy & Ludwig snare of mine
