FB Marketplace - These Olympic drums worth the asking price?

On my local FaceBook market place is a set of drums for sale. They are asking $200. Is this a great deal? I see one cymbal on top the snare. These are the pictures that were posted. What do you think?

The tom on top of the snare has different lugs. All the drums might be Premier Olympics (I think they did change the style), but I did notice that. I believe the shells are basswood. I wouldn't call this a "great" deal, but if you need a $200 drum kit, these will work.

A good assessment.
These aren't the Olympics of the 60s & 70s that were British made mahogany Premier shells made cheaper by fitting fewer lugs, they're a more recent "stencil" basswood kit. A good $200 kit if that's what your after but not a
valuable piece of quality being sold unknowingly at a bargain price.
