Default Slingerland snare

It was a strange day. I answered a Craigslist ad and went to buy a cymbal stand. I wound up buying the stand, a set of Zildjian hihats (Newbeats or pre-Newbeats, not sure yet), and the Slingerland snare below.

I'm not really a collector, but I seem to attract this stuff. The snare is cleaning up nicely, other than a few scratches there are no problems. The throw works well, and everything looks original... as a matter of fact the heads were both Slingerland heads and appear to have never been changed. Anyway, I cleaned it up and put a new batter head on it, and it sounds fantastic... similar to my acrolite.

Sooo... what is it? Is it Radio King family? Is it student model? It has the black & silver Niles badge, serial #26388. thanks for the help!
