Default Ludwig Keystone Badge Acrolite

This is a nice Ludwig Acrolite, it's dated August, 1967. There is one minor issue, the little latch inside of throw off needs to be attached in order to function properly, easy fix. Could use a good cleaning, more pictures upon request, thanks.
$100 plus shipping.
SOLD!

Nice deal Johnny someone needs these. Dropped off a roof this is still the best snare ever.

I see what you mean but it could just be the angle of the picture?

Top rim has wider ears and deeper bottom flange but they could still both be Ludwig from what I've encountered. I have two different rim designs on my Clubbies, but again I think they are all Ludwig.

Cool snare.

Finding Keystone Acros for less than 200 is getting harder and harder.

This should be simple.

Seems like a really good price on an acro.
From what I've read the late 60s Acrolites are some of the most desirable snare drums according to Bill Cardwell of C&C.
According to Bill, Wm F Ludwig Jr indicated to him that the '66-'68 acrolites were different somehow.

I've had pretty good luck selling on Reverb lately. You might try selling there.

Surely not a matter of price. It's a smokin' great deal. Just a matter of the right eyes to see it. Reverb would be good at a real low commission rate.
