Default Re: Oct 30, 2008 - 1918 Ludwig Catalog Snares and Sets

I know this is an old thread, but I am trying to date a drum I just bought at the 2017 Chicago Drum show. It is a 2 piece shell, and has Pat Pending on the strainer. The only stamp is Ludwig & Ludwig Chicago on the batter rim. Would the "Pat. Pending" date the drum? It looks like there were badges on the "newer" ones in the '20's. I am thinking 1918. I'll attach some pictures. Thanks in advance. JC
