Default Request help - ID this Ludwig Snare?
Hello, request your help to ID this Ludwig snare I'm considering buying. I'm a relatively new drummer, looking to pick up an affordable good snare, have been shopping for acrolite and found this one.

The pics are poor (looking at the black one on top of the DW), I'm trying to go see it today.

Best I can tell based on scouring threads, forums, and the rest of the internet...looks like a 5x14, with keystone badge, 8 lug (Imperial), baseball bat muffler...and it's black... haven't seen the strainer yet. Again the pics aren't that great, but I don't think I've seen this combo of hardware on one of these drums, and would like to have a clue what it is before I buy.

Is it possible this is a 60's acrolite or even a 402 (5x14 black beauty?) Any suggestions on questions I could ask or other things I should look for in person? The lugs look pitted to me...hard to tell. And is that black color original, or does it look painted? Drum is listed for $135.

Thank you for your time, any advice sincerely appreciated.
