Not on bearing edge and is structually strong and fine. Vintage drum expert John Aldridge gave us this info on this snare Thanks John!
: Hey Chris, That triangular cutout in the inside bearing edge is from the factory. All two piece shells have it, along with a small round hole in the opposite side.
These were attachment points for electrodes when plating the shells on a rack. Excellent condition, especially for it's age. New snare wires and new heads, ready to go!
