Default GRETSCH 1940s drums OR SSF SHELLPACK for Gretsch StopSing badge drums

TRADE
My FOUR 1940's orphaned drums


24bd 13 and 16 toms
6.5x14 Super Structure snare
No extra holes
Original hardware except for a few era-correct replacements
My drums are excellent candidates for a WRAP project.
Some 'worts' on a few of the shells but nothing major.
Edges are good and drums in-round.

My 16 floor tom is a bit of a rarity because it is a 6ply - a 6ply 1940s Gretsch floor tom is unusual. It came to me with the original wrap - damaged. It has a 1947 date-stamp inside.

OR
My 1968 Sunset Satin Flame shellpack (20/12/12/16 - no snare)

I'm looking for:
Three 1970's Gretsch StopSign badge drums

20" bass drum
14" floor tom
14 or 13 inch WOOD snare drum
The drums can be ORPHANED and finish need not be perfect as I will be refinishing the drums.
All hardware must be there (era-correct replacements are fine)
All original badges and paper tags must be there.
Shells must be in good to excellent condition - bearing edges good and NO EXTRA HOLES.

I'm in BC Canada close to the boarder town of Oroville Washington State. I would be willing to deliver the drums to the Canadian side of the boarder if there is someone in the USA close to Oroville WA. that wants to save on shipping.

Okay - I would rather not do this but I've had next to no response for my trade thread here.

I might even throw in my precious 9x13 factory original 1947 Gretsch 9x13 tom as an extra with my drums. I have some spare lugs as well.

I'm considering trading my Sunset Satin Flame drums for the same SSB drums listed above
