Default Advice? Ludwig marching snare

It's over in my Mom's shed so I don't have pics now, not that it matters.

It's a Stainless Steel 10x14, 12 Mach lugs, Super-Sensitive. It's missing hoops (which I imagine might have been the die-cast),rods, strainer parts & it's kind of beat up, dents & scatches & a bracket that doesn't look factory. The bearing edges are in good shape & I put a head on it, seems to be in round. Yes, even without hoops, heads & parts it's darned heavy!

So, is it worth restoring, knowing how difficult it is to find the old 12 hole die-cast hoops, or should I sell it as-is? I really don't have a use for it even if it was like new, too deep & heavy. Is there a market for these? I can possibly see a heavy metal drummer using it, but I don't know any metal drummers.

I have a funny story about Stainless marching drums from my time in a music store

Bonham used a 14x10 stainless from time to time. You might be able to sell it to someone looking for one of those. Bonham's might not have had mach lugs, though.

Just checked. His 14x10 had classic lugs. Still, might be worth it to someone out there if you decide you don't want to bother restoring it.
