Ludwig Buddy Rich Model Snare Drum

Ludwig Buddy Rich model snare drum (made sometime between 1947-1956)
Here are the specifics:
Everything but the batter side head, the ball bat throw-off handle and one tension are original…including the original calf-skin resonant head!
Hoops
Chrome over brass. No pitting or rust. Some typical rash from being in and out of a hard fiber case.

Bearing Edges
Obviously the resonant side is in pristine condition but the batter sides excellent as well.

Shells
Original 3 ply (Mahogany + ?). Reinforcing rings are intact with no splitting. Overall excellent condition.
Covering
A very small scuff.. Discoloration shown in pictures. Seam is tight.
Muffler
All original and in perfect working order
Strainer
Baseball bat lever has been replaced with a later version which has the 3 grooves near the top. Perfect working order. Snare wire are original.
Original Lugs and all but 1 original tension rod.
No rust and very little pin point pitting on the lugs.
More pics available on request.
Hopefully I have included all the details regarding the condition of this drum. Feel free to contact me with questions and shipping prices.
Asking $650 but reasonable offers considered. Thanks for looking.
