Re: What to look for in vintage Ludwig Sets
That kit that you are looking at appears to be in real good shape. It will clean up nice. It is great that it is complete as it was delivered way back then too.
I would do what Larry said and pull the heads to inspect for cracks, mold, and rot, etc. My guess is that you won't find any issues but it never hurts to look so that you know exactly what you are buying.
I kind of like old drums:)
