Default Slingerland tom mount

I need some help with this tom mount. Never saw one on a Slingerland before. Any ideas?

Thanks,Ed

It is an exact match for a '60s era Premier mount. I think this was a virgin bass drum that a dealer put this mount on. The spurs are probably Premier also or MIJ.

Spurs themselves look like Slingerland... not sure about the mounts.. Maybe Ludwig..

Spurs are not Slingy, I've seen mounts similar to these before. Maybe on a Gretsch? Also on MIJ. Anyway I am going to leave as is and clean it up.
It will be a practice set for now. If I can't get the tom in a playable position for me with this mount,I will use a snare stand. I am not going to drill any holes in them right now.

I was referring to the Spurs being Slingerland (which they are) .. Not the spur mounts...
