Default 1942 to 1945 Ludwig Victory kit

This is not my kit for sale.
Being fairly new to the forum I think I am allowed to share . . .
I saw this kit while surfing Craigslist. Not sure if the person posting is a member or not but given the rarity and overall great look of the kit I thought someone might be interested. Not sure if it is a good price or not. I saw a kit like this at the CT Drum show . . . wish I had the cash !

this is a highly collectible Ludwig kit from 1942 to 1945 when metal was rationed and Ludwig built kits using wood hoops and lugs. this kit is playable but could benefit from a restoration. original hardware is included. $2000 firm

It is certainly a fair price for a kit in that condition. Hard sell though. Very few of us actually look for a kit of that nature, and someone like me would want to " Museum " it, and have it more for display & occasional play than actual use. I'd be terrified of the wood lugs breaking or cracking. To me that is a kit that should be in a WWII museum as part of American History. So many people know of the war effort,steel pennies,sugar stamps,etc... But very few are aware of the drums made during that time.
