Default Slingerland bass ID

I'm waiting to hear back on the size. Cloud badge. Marching drum? Are those called single lugs? Would it be good in a set? Estimate the value?

Thanks

Cool old drum... Not sure what those old bass drum bring but it would cool to build "Levon Helm" kit around it.

It's a Radio King Marching single tension bass drum, the badge is dated from 1928-1947. These single tension bass drums sound ever bit as good as a double tension model.

Per Dr CJ Wenk that badge was primarily used on marching and juvenile drums. Looks like the "universal" build type. Check for a date code inside, would help with identification.
