Default What snare drum do i have?

Hi guys...i thought i am good to identify few drums but here i have something which i have no idea what it is...maybe the previous owners changed the lugs i don't know but here are the facts:

1) The shell looks like Rogers Powertone from the 1960s looking at the two lines going all the way aorund the shell on to and bottom. It is COB thin shell. Throw off spacing and butt end also indicates to a brand from 1960s.

2) Lugs are again 1960s and it takes DW thread, not the usual M4 screws. If i am correct, Camco used this and Leedy. The screws are the "sonor" style which again can not be sonor as they used M5 screws and not the USA threads. Early Leedy used this type of screws but the shape of the lugs are not matching.

3) the three lines on the lugs is very similar to early Camco but its not 100% the shape.

4) hoops are again 1960s style die cast hoops.

5) No smapce for air vent which I found a bit strange and have not seen a COB snare with 6 lugs however I use to have a Rogers snare with 6 lugs.

Any info will be greatly appreciated and thank you all for your help and taking the time reading this.
