i could not find this serial number anywhere on the lists here at the site....

you likely are describing a Ludwig Acrolite. It's a VERY common drum...and a VERY GOOD drum (usually). The value is fairly low because of how common they are. Depending on the condition and year, the Acrolite usually sells for between $75-$200.
