California, USAOn Aug-02-19 at 17:30:14 PDT, seller added the following information:Info From the EBay drum community...
The grain on the 12" matches between old pictures and current pictures. The grain matches with the drum right side up with the badge facing up from your original pictures and an old picture from Getty Images that shows that drum mounted right side up before the Ludwig mounts were added. The grain on the other side also matches in the upside down picture that you sent me and another old picture from Modern Drummer that your old picture came from. The grain completely different on both sides so it is very easy to tell when the drum is right side up and upside down. Based on this it appears you have the real deal there. At least with the 12" tom. I am not any kind of certified expert but have been a woodworker for 35 years and have been a drummer for 40. I have been working on vintage drums for at least 20. I am including pictures documenting the matching details. (see photos)
