Default Advice on early '70's Vintage Orange Ludwig kit

Hi there - i can get a early 70's Ludwig kit in that John Densmore orange wrap, which I have always loved but they are very scarce here in South Africa. This is the first one that I have ever seen for sale here. The price tag is average (in the region of USD 680) but there are some condition issues. I also will have to buy blind and ship as the kit is about 1000 kilometers from where I live. The snare is heavily pitted, which I know is an issue with the Supras, but the damage to the wrap is more of a concern to me. Please have a look at the pics enclosed - especially the damage to the floor tom wrap worries me as it appears to maybe be water related. What do you guys think? The seller tells me that the shells show no water marks. Do you guys think that these blemishes could be indicative of some abuse? Would you buy the kit and if so, at what price.

Thanks guys and have a great day,
