Default WFL Twin Sensitive metal shells

Hey everyone!

Want to post this cool find before I listed it...a 1937 WFL Twin Sensitive metal shell. Sheís seen some wear over the years with a few dents, but sounds great.

Iíve been at a loss for finding any other metal shell twin in the wild. Iíve scoured eBay, Reverb and the forums and can barely even find pictures of this one.

Wanted to see if anyone here had one themselves or have come across them before.

I have one in my collection.
It can be viewed on "1920-30's Drums..." site on FB.
It probably looks just like yours?
