Need help identifying a Pearl snare

I have a Pearl snare that sounds quite cool. It looks like it wasn't of the cheapest sort, but I don't know ...
Can anybody help me identify this model?

Unfortunately it's damaged in a quite ugly way (no idea what happened, I got it in this condition).

Thanks for your help!

I can't help you with the model name. I can tell you I had a steel 6.5" version of the same snare and it was fantastic. The way the strainer utilizes the rods to seat the wires perfectly is spectacular. I wish more snares were set up like this. Sucks about the damage, but still a cool snare regardless. Mine was from around 85, yours looks to be relatively similar in age based off of lugs and badge.
