Cool Re: Rogers Expert Please Help

If that is the original wrap, you should see indents and/or marks from the original bread and butter lugs...It doesn`t look like there are any in the pics...This could be more evidence of a rewrap...

According to the Vintage Drum Guide Rogers Badge page, this badge was in circulation from 1938-57...

Cool Re: Nikkan marching school snare

I`m thinking that this is a case where someone has converted a tom into a snare...That size is common for a tom...I personally have not seen a MIJ snare smaller than 13" diameter...
