Default Rogers or Not

This drum is on a auction site..I was bidding thinking it is a Rogers drum.
But after thinking more about it I think it is a MIJ copy of Rogers.
What do you guys think??

The broken lug looks like Rogers in the 50's. Should have a Rogers ID somewhere by badge or interior tag. Pic of interior or at least the throwoff is a good indicator to check.

I have a snare that looks much like that, Rogers. Bought it at an antique store for $25 because I felt sorry for it. Every lug was broken into several pieces. I believe mine does have a badge on it though. I replaced the lugs with generic ones that "sorta" fit the original holes. I have considered getting some of the new Rogers replacement lugs for it but I don't think my drum is quite worth that much expense.

100 percent Rogers, 100 percent worth it.

Lug centers wont be 1 5/8... you will have to find an alternative. New rogers are 1 5/8... double ended snare drum...

This one from the 50s.
