Default How old is this kit?

Hey,

I have a Slingerland (Niles) kit with serial number 115118. Does anyone know when this kit was made?

Thanks!

I'm no Slingerland expert I'm afraid... Any pictures?

I have no clue when it was made, but I have a question regarding the wrap. I've seen that kind of wrap on many vintage drums and like the way it looks. Is it bumpy or does it just look that way?

I have a Slingerland snare that is in the 204xxx range, its a 1969 as near as I could tell.

raxorx - The wrap is perfectly flat and smooth, but the emerald design makes it sparkle as if it were bumpy.

Thanks ploughman, then I guess we know that it's pre-1969. Does anyone else have any estimates or serial #'s for comparison?

Thanks!
