Therefore the same inaccuracies are repeated and perpetuated.Note: I am grateful to Rob and the others who developed the first dating guides, but by collecting much more information, an improved guide was possible.My original SC kit was Sable Black and had the Mach Lugs.

I thought it was just to provide an extra "branding option" should the RIMS mount cover the badge. Mind you something like that would retail for around 5 and a half to 6 thousand here (last I checked), so we seldom see CM's on the shop floor at all in Oz.

I've seen it on other brands with RIMS style mounting.

Any estimate for drums made from 1972 and newer are just estimates and less precise than in earlier years.

There are some purchase dates reported from original owners which help to refine estimates for the later 1970s, but there is still a bit of flex to the numbers. __________________ Collecting information about the following for ongoing research projects: Gretsch drums with serial numbers, Ludwig Keystone and B/O badge drums with serial numbers and date stamps, Ludwig Standards from 1968-73, and Ludwigs with paper labels from 1971-72

I have recently acquired a Ludwig kit that consists drums the previous owner collected along the way.

I looked at the online guides and can't see 7 digit numbers listed. I have no doubt that the drums are original, but just wondered if anyone had any insight onto dating the 7 digit serial numbers?

Not sure if it applies to both CM and Legacy, but for sure for the Classic Maple.

Ludwig will also apply a finish a customer sends to them, if someone wanted a finish they don't offer.

I think they did the two badges so the badge could face out on either side of a mount.

My '07 kit had 2 badges on the toms, but I got a couple drums in 2011 and they had one again.

One badge will have serial numbers, and the other is plain.
