Default Slingerland Metal Snare - Is it Barrett Deems Model?

Hi All,
I've dated this drum to between 1960-62 because its a non-serial numbered Niles badge. I thought it was a Festival but a friend swears it's the Barrett Deems model which is far more valuable. Any thoughts?

Thought Barrett Deems was a WFL thing....?
Looks like a three-point strainer there...
The first chrome Radio Kings had a smooth shell, they went to the three-line shell a year or two later

I know there were Ludwig Barrett Deems drums from the late '50s, but there seems to be some scant mention of Slingerland Deems drums from the early 60s on the web too. I could be totally wrong however! This is indeed a 3 point strainer w/ a smooth shell. The bearing edges are rolled over as well. Here's a few new pics I just took

Bill that's all I've been able to determine that it's called the" Brass shell model." it comes equipped with the 3 point strainer and no snare gates as the RK model would have.

I agree this is most likely it.

Just under the cat scan for clear lacquer Brass, it has the chrome shell listed. Just before the Brass Radio King smooth shell Kevins mentions.

I thought Deems had a WFL model and Krupa was Slingerland's main man. I didn't know Deems was with Slingerland. I'm assuming that's a brass shell. Nice snare!
