That date stamp is Aug. 1972.

Thanks, I plan to clean them up and put a couple new heads on them. Thin shells, they should sound good! Just need one lug for the snare drum.

Yes, all the lugs are plastic. Ive found a replacement lug for the snare drum from a Sonor guy overseas.

My 1969-71 20/13/13/16 teardrop in blue onyx (other 13" rack tom not pictured)

and

My 1967 18/12/14/16 teardrop in turquoise sparkle. This was probably a made to order set because of the odd configuration, but the crazy spread works well for what I do.

Are you one of the few who still has the round cap for that snare throw ?

I've had a D-424 and this D-471 and neither has a cap. I've seen repros on the market, or rather snares with repros, but I don't think I've ever seen an old Sonor with the cap still on the throw in person.
