    What issue was it in? I probably have it. What’s interesting to me is that I have a sparkling gold Rogers starlite kit with eagle badges that was made according to the serial # tags a short time after my pirate badged PDP set????

    Volume 12 #4 Fall/Winter 2002. Your early script logo and eagle badge make total sense. The scripts were short lived before the standard eagle badge stopped. That eagle flew on some drums into the very early 60s. Mainly marchers though.

    And, many kits--PDP included, I would guess--left the factory with mixed Eagle and Pirate badges. The factory used up the stock on hand.

    Hard to see much, but I think this is the only time I took the Parklane to a gig. I played it seated.

    I used to play mine a lot with my 3 piece "dinner band," but now I use my suitcase kit, as it does the job and is also an eye catcher. All Rogers hardware!
