Haven't ever seen one in the flesh.

To me it looks like getting a snare drum with any depth to it (and deep snares were popular around then) setting low enough to play would be impossible. Which might explain why you never see these stands.

" if a stand was cobbled together for catalog promo shoots yet never left the factory did it ever exist?"

part no. 1393 could be the 10" extension stand (not pictured either)
but "1375" or"1393" is worth pursuing a picture of.
Otherwise that was just used for photo-shoots and an inside joke to drive someone crazy 42 years later (it worked.. : )

if you see on page 68 of that 80 catalog under 1374 is 1375 (with 10" extension) no picture.
on page 69 lower right 10" extension tube available under no. 1393. again no picture.

Sometimes in those displays - I don't see the hercules ratchet on a snare stand elsewhere- they wanted the snare up to be somewhat "exciting and visible" and the parts dept. may have just sawed or splayed or welded one together for display

that's all All I got on it

With the height of that stand, it would only be usable as a concert stand.
I have one of the extensions, I will post a photo later on.
