Typically, a Crosby drum should have a nickel plated rotor. The rotor on this drum is blued. Buyer beware!

Maybe the seller has got his hands on the drums that were supposed to be available in East Europe?

Rotor looks to shiney to be an original in it. Notice the entire drum has a flat black color and the rotor is shiney blue. I think somebody picked up a parts drum and put in a new rotor. Still, $1500 is way to freakin much. If somebody goes for that, I know where a couple of 2nd & 3rd gen drums are at for less.
