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.

Thanks MrInsanePolack and sacco, much appreciated (although it's been quite a while – I'm sorry😬!).
Do you think the drum would be of any selling worth if I don't have any use for it, or should I rather keep
