As far as i can see this is a Sonor Snare from the very early 50s! I think the called it Radio Star(not sure) they had metric shells and are very rare!

Pity! It sold for 50 USD on Ebay and I didn't bid as the strainer looks so odd.... Thanks for all the expertise!

This was a quite rare Sonor radio star pancake.
It's in the 1956 Sonor catalog.
