Help In Identifying This Snare

I bought this snare recently and the guy I bought it from labeled it a Pearl snare even though there's no label or badge on it. I will include a picture, but here's the pertinent info: It's a 14" x 6.5" metal snare drum with 8 lugs. The finish is that black with gold-like flecks in it similar to a Ludwig Blackrolite. You will also notice the lines that go around the middle of the shell (I forget what they're called). They are a little reminiscent of the Pearl Jupiter or Sensitone but not exactly. Hopefully they are visible in the pics.
I knew you sleuths would be the ones to help if anyone can. Thanks!

Looks to me like a 80's/early 90's Export steel shell that someone applied Black Galaxy style paint to. Easily checked with a magnet. The airhole in the center of the bead lines and the throwoff are why I tend to think this is the case.

That certainly looks to be the case... thanks!! The guy also went nuts and lined the inside of the shell with acrylic or fiberglass. I gotta admit though, it's a great sounding snare!
