Anyone recognize this Gretsch badged marching drum?

Someone asked me about this today. Gretsch round badge with vent hole so could be from 20's to early 60's. The throw off looks like a replacement from the 60's...doesn't seem to fit this drum. The overall look of the drum seems like 50's or earlier. Snare wires look old school. Then again, maybe it's a reproduction of sorts.

Gretsch snare on REVERB

That rope snare from the 30's/40's has some common traits.

Wait, you mean they didn't offer the micro in the 30's?
