Ive looked online and read up about Ludwig serial numbers but something isnt corresponding right between the serial numbers and the dating system i read. The numbers are 1701309 and 2160323. They have the blue/olive badge with the pointy corners. Can somebody help me out?

The first serial number should be around 78,and the second one early 80's,however the second badge should have rounded corners if its a B/O badge.Ludwig started using the rounded corner badge in 79.

Thanks alot for the response. As far as the badge on the second snare, its definitely the pointy one.
