Default Re: What to look for in vintage Ludwig Sets

'68 was when Ludwig stopped using the maple/poplar/mahogany shell. The kit you have pictured will have the clear maple interiors, and the shell is maple/poplar/maple. The 3 ply Thermogloss drums I have are from '69 (13", 16") and '71 (18"). Ludwig made the maple/poplar/maple shell up 'til '76, when they switched to the 6 ply shell (no reinforcement ring).
This seat does not recline as per Federal Aviation Regulation 121.310 (f)(3)
