Do you have a reference for this? I'm thinking old ad copy or catalog from the Trans stamp era.

I haven't got any catalogs or ads going back that far in time. And I just re-read that section of The Cymbal Book but it isn't at all explicit on when companies started drilling holes in bottoms. It makes it sound like that was only post 1970s, but as I say it isn't explicit. Any help appreciated.
