Well, I am very certain that there was brass showing through 
where the oxide had been rubbed through.
(For reference, we were talking about my experiences with a 
Bendix G-15, not an LGP-30.)  So, I think the G-15 drum had 
a brass sleeve that might have been shrunk onto the aluminum 
casting.  The brass would not have holes, which the aluminum 
casting could have had (But I'm just guessing about why they 
made it that way.)
