    That’s a modern badge. It’s not that old. As for year, I’m not sure. The serial number may have or may be a date code. Ludwig moved operations to NC in 1984.

    That is a nice wrap. My favorite Ludwig badge was the black n white one they used on the Rocker series. Can remember wanting a set of Rockers so bad. Still have the catalog.

    I also like the olive coloured ones are they only on the classic maple kits? I prefer the keystone badges.

    The black and white badges were on the rocker series from 1984ish to 94ish. Then they used them only on the black galaxy acrolites from 94ish to 2005 or so.
    The blue/ olive badges were from 1969-1980ish.
