I've got a pair of those. They are Noble and Cooley Cam Action snares.

I've got them on a 1963 Ludwig Jazz Festival. They should be great on that Supra as well. In fact, I've got a 1969 Supra and maybe I should try my N&C snares on my Supra. I haven't tried that yet.

Note: better (and enlargeable pic) here:

Thanks Zenstat for the info there isn't much you don't know. When I seen these wires i thought wow never seen these before. I must admit they do sound magical. I thought they were made on a custom basis. At least I can now say I have a 68 supra / noble and cooley.....Many Thanks........sean.
