It's all about finding the right buyer. I wouldn't like to guess a price on it. Being that it's black and brass badge with no serial makes it desirable enough. Check eBay sold listings for some drums similar to this. I know I paid $150 for my COB Gene Krupa. Slingy metal snares don't seem to be as valuable as Ludwig or Rogers, but this is not commn Gene Krupa model so I really don't know. Don't expect a four figure number is all I'm saying.

Nice drums. I have one, but the internal damper is a single pad, not the double like yours.
Yes, it is the Brass Shell model.
They are certainly not as common as the later 3 line shells. I think I paid $225 for mine, and thought that was a good deal. I had been looking for one, and had to wait quite awhile before one in good condition came up for sale.
I really wanted the lacquered brass version, not the chromed, but couldn't find one in good shape.
