Can't see the pics for some reason but if it is a 2000 like in the pic then it's either seamless spun aluminium (if an earlier drum) or a steel shell of later.

The aluminium drums tend to pit in the same way Ludalloy drums do.

If the snare drum mechanism works well then the rule with these drums is LEAVE IT ALONE! It's quite a complicated mechanism and easy to get out of sync, but difficult to get dialled back in if it's fiddled with.

thanks, ya lost the pics on by p/bucket but i ended up buying the snare anyway. it's not magnetic, Nov 1971 date inside, Aluminium given all the great info in DSOP's post. sounds great.just going to explore on it more when i get the time.
changing the bottom reso head is a PITA with that parallel strainer mechanism. Not sure why they designed things that way 'back in the day'.
