Default Pre-war 7x14 Radio King

O.K., so it was a sunny day today and I took some nice shots, well here's another one from my vault.
1940 or so Slingerland Radio King in it's original White Enamel finish, and 3 point strainer. Solid shell, all original, and sounds just as woody as it could. The pre-war RK's exude the quality and craftsmanship unlike any other era.
A few cracks in the Enamel finish is really the only flaw in this drum.
