Default Gladstone snare drums list?

With the recent posts from Steve Maxwell about the Gladstone complete set I have been wondering about the snare drums. Somewhere I had seen a listing of all the snares Billy Gladstone made under his own name (pre Gretsch). It was a document somewhere on the internet. I remember it listed those that were lost or destroyed, the ones owned by The Marine band (some of which were stolen) and those made for famous drummers including Shelly Manne. Does anyone know where this list is located? Id like to view it and save a copy.

Not sure about the list but a Gladstone snare is currently for sale if you want to re-mortgage!

1920s 14"x5" Ludwig Super Sensitive Dual Snare
1957 6 1/2" x15" Slingerland WMP Concert King
1938 8"x15" Leedy Broadway Standard
1947-53 14x6.5" NOB Ludwig & Ludwig Universal
...plus a bunch of mismatched Slingerlands that collectively make a pleasing noise.

One thing I don't understand when there is an enormous starting bid such as in this case, why charge a separate
shipping fee on top of the asking price. There must be a hefty profit margin to begin with.

I never knew there was a list, but it makes sense that someone would have attempted it.
I took lessons from Ted Reed (Syncopation) as a HS kid and he definitely knew the whereabouts of many of those drums back then as he was actively buying them up. I think he had 9 drums before he retired from playing. I've heard there were about 55 drums BG made and many still haven't surfaced.

As with politicians, there seems to be no top limit on greed.

I can vouch for the three at West Point. At least they were still there when I was there ('90 to '94). One of them sounded OK, but not great. The other two sounded like ass, no matter what we did to them.
