1920s Ludwig snare. Best throw off upgrade?

First time posting. Came for your recommendations.

I have a 1920's Ludwig Snare. The 4x15" "Concert Dance" Model. It has the original hardware, which is great. The snare throw off is the "Tango" Throw off, which is attached to the hoop and not the shell. Good thing: Shell doesn't have a bunch of drilled holes in it. Bad thing: Shell doesn't have any holes in it at all, so I'm going to have to drill into this relic if I want to upgrade.

What recommendations do you have for replacement/upgrade options on this? I want make an informed decision before I make any permanent changes to the shell...

Good luck! Try not to drill, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do.

maybe sale it or trade it and get one that you would not feel so bad about drilling or something ready to use?
