That eBay kit appears to be from the early 90's HSS era and would be the Artist Classic series. Five-ply shells, consisting of inner/outer plies of Canadian Maple, with three inner mahogany plies. Yes, assembled in Taiwan, but nice drums.

Wait! I take back what I said about the HSS era. Those badges were black/gold and had "USA" on the bottom, which was very misleading. I'm not sure what wood was used in the kit in question. I purchased my 1994 HSS kit for $300, with free shipping. There was no wrap and all hardware removed from the shells, but included. Here's what I did with them...

So, yeah, $520 is a bit much!
