Default 50s Gretsch kit

Hi guys I don't know if it's the right place to post this but I have the opportunity to buy a vintage Gretsch kit for 300$CAD, the guy says it's from the 50s, it sure does look like a round badge (there are 4 pictures): http://montreal.kijiji.ca/c-ViewAdLa...AdId=411916231

Is it worth it? If you have any info I would appreciate it.
Thanks!

The seller is not answering is phone, but I left an email saying that I'm taking it for sure and to keep it for me if possible. Fingers crossed.

I hope you get the drums. At that price it's a steal and they should clean up nicely.

Never, ever, ever, ever, ever, etc. etc. add the CL listing to queries when asking ?'s. When you do you're tapping every other VD nut who is going to get on the horn asking to ship, thus tipping off the seller that his asking price ($300 in your case) is way below what he should be asking. If seller has a brain, he'll rethink things & proceed accordingly.

Translated: not everyone on VDF is your friend.

Better luck next time - Chris

Unless it was the seller that posted to get a value, but I'm sure they have gone to another VDF "viewer/lurker" (not necessarily a member).

Everyone keep your eyes peeled for individual *bay auctions for a 50's Gold Sparkle bass drum, floor tom, snare drum and tom-tom with out hardware sitting on a paisley area rug.

Fingers still crossed for the original poster.
