Anyway: first of all let me tell you that you have found a great snare! In fact it looks like your Supra is a chrome over brass one (COB)! The interior does not look like Ludalloy (aluminum). I have a relatively recent COB Supra and it has a very similar interior. What I do not understand is the blue / olive badge: it seemed to me that around 2008 Ludwig already had the new Monroe type of badge (new keystone badge).

Ludwig experts?
Yeah I took it to a local music shop and the guy there thought that it might be a brass shell, too. I'd be really interested to find out.

By the way, but not to brag, but I got the drum for $177.50. Both the guys that work in the Drum Dept. at the shop said I stole it!!
