Nice set of old pearls.
I recommend tearing them down and cleaning and rebuilding.
Re-level and sand the bearing edges......keep original profile though....they tend to be rounded over edges giving plenty of head to shell contact for that old school full sound.

Nice-Battleship lugs-they may even have maple interiors! And that color is very nice.

It is my understanding that those lugs were not used until about 1972. It would be nice to have evidence of use earlier than that - any more specific 'proof' of the dating of these lugs.

Great Score! Those will be gorgeous when cleaned up!

Nice!....10 lug snare AND bass. You have the tom mount? What are the sizes?
