I believe it's the 1/8" roundover & 30° inner bevel like the Legacy series (which is the '50/60s & clear maple era edge.)

I've played them at the past two NAMM shows and they're really nice!

30 degree inner cut with a 1/4" radius round over, at least according to Ludwig's Legacy Mahogany page.

I have a jazz fest in vintage black oyster pearl. Ludwig has done a heck of a job with this snare. It is unique in that it has a white reso-coat interior and the "baseball bat" muffler. The thing sounds tremendous.
