The pearl white wrap has yellowed but is firmly attached and free of scratches and smudges. T is some rust at various points as seen in the photos . I tried to shoot every significant location. All of the tension screws have rust to some degree. The finish on the lugs is excellent with the exception of one, which has a deep pit on the front surface. See photo. The drum is in 100% working condition and ready to play. The heads are in good condition and the snare strainer works smoothly. The soft case pictured is also included in the auction.
