Ooh I'd pay 500 for that. Then again I'm up in Canada where that would be a pretty sweet deal...

The bass and snare may be older than the tom that has the paper label. The badge style and the one point butt on the snare point to late 50s/early 60s. The faucet style T-rods and lack of interior paint on the bass point to 1950s.

When you see them, look for a date stamp inside any of the shells which are not painted silver.

Just found out the hi tom doesn't match the rest of the kit. Bummer! That kills the value I'm sure.
