Very cool! Judging by where the badges are places it looks like it is most likely a set from 1975. The seams are lifting, which is common but the silver sparkle looks to be in decent shape. Would be cool to see these end up in the Hard Rock in Boston. I think that's where they belong. The Rock is married to Sib's daughter. Maybe he should buy them and keep them in the family. That is unless the family is the one auctioning them off.

Never mind what I wrote. I saw an article that says the family is auctioning his things off for charity and it's being held at the Hard Rock.

Saw Boston around 78 or 79 in London so possibly saw this kit then. What a phenomenal band they were. Utterly blew me away.
