Sorry,I don't have the answer, but would also like to find out because my 40s radio king snare came with this or one very similar. I wonder if anyone knowledgable could show pics of the different heads from all the different decades.

The recently introduced remo classic fit heads use this old logo but it says classic fit somewhere on there.

Here is a head that I recently got on a snare drum. I have not looked at it closely yet, and am not sure if it is a calf head with a Remo rim on it. or an early plastic head. I'll ask Joe and see what he remembers about it.

That one is calf. Very nice looking ink still as well.

Notice the "Amrawco" in that logo. American Rawhide Company. Here's an interesting article that mentions the company in this George Way profile:
