Default Gretsch Round Badge

I'm curious to what you guys would value this 50's era Gretsch rb for? The badges are missing on the13,24 and it looks like the kick is the single tension, thanks
9x13,16x16,14x24

once the brass ceases to glitter, and the drum looses its luster, and the stage remains dark, all you have left is the timbre of family.

The 13 looks like 6ply, the 16, 24 look like 3ply. The 16 is dated October 12, 1953.

Single tension drums can be less desirable but I have a 24” wfl and is sounds great,
I would guess $1200
