Anyone know about the date of this Olympic scotch bass drum?

And any other particulars, perhaps? I found this at Goodwill just now for cheap, and it appears to have served as decoration for at least part of its life. I know that Olympic was Premier's value brand.

62 to 69 based on the badge (I have a 6 lug snare w the same badge).
I wonder if its pre international head sizes?

if you're thinking of flipping it let me know. I play in a marching band and we're always looking for a lighter bass drum (we have an Impact 22" now).

Thanks for the info! I'm actually interested in the drum, but I hope you find something fast!

I'm not sure about whether it's pre-international or not. It did cross my mind. The Lyra head (which someone told me was Japanese) as well as the old Elkhart calf head leads me to think that it's to a modern or American standard, though I could be off. In any case, I'll be babying these heads! Don't wanna replace a 26".
