Does anyone know what this Ludwig drum is?

Does anyone know what this Ludwig drum is?

I've ended up as owner of this orphan Ludwig tom. My basic research leads me to believe that it's a 60 or a 61 but what I learn in 20 minutes on the internet is probably less than some people here knows off the top of their head.

Size is 15 wide by 12 deep. No badge, no serial #, but hardware is all 60s looking. I'm an actual bass player and the drummer on my last gig had a kit that looked a lot like this but had the insides painted white, badges. That very knowledgable drummer hadn't seen that weird 15x12 size. His kit sounded great so I'm on the fence as to whether I'd sell or just be lucky owner of a great old drum. Seems like 15x12 might be a tough size to tune to any sort of iconic vintage sound?

Pics attached, thanks for your time and knowledge.

This is purely a guess. I think someone refinished and added legs to a rack tom, or maybe even an old field drum.
