Default Nikkan marching school snare

I picked up this Nikkan marching school snare today here in Phnom Penh in Japanese second hand store.

It was the best condition of about 4 or 5 drums the same so my guess is that they came from a Japanese school music department somewhere.

What I know:
12" x 8"
6 central lugs
Luan shell (maybe 3mm) with reinforcement hoops about the same.
A bit roughly finished- stamped, but I can't make it out!
Red sparkle wrap a little loose in places but still in good condition

No snare wires
From what I have read on this forum, the Nikkan company was bought by Yamaha in '67 when Yamaha started making drums and other instruments.
When searching for Nikkan, quite a few of these come up on the various Japanese auction sites and it is pretty similar to a Yamaha marching snare I saw in another Japanese store here but didn't manage to snatch up.

Any other info anyone?

Sorry - only a couple of pictures as my internet is very poor tonight!
