I remember when I was in school that the badges were coming off and the pointed corners would poke people. I could see kids at that age pulling them off to keep from getting poked. Plus the general disrespect and disregard everyone had for "the junker kit" at the time not knowing what it really was.Unless it was rewrapped, why would all the badges be removed? I can understand one missing, but all of them?
The thought has occurred to me.I realize you're working on getting the original kit back together, but what if you just got an 18" Legacy floor tom in Silver Sparkle?
They might not be 100% "correct", but it would be a means to an end.
