“F” stamps inside Rogers shells


Hey guys, I have been compiling info about these stamps for a while and I have written a little story about it. I am relying heavily on my fellow Rogers friends on this forum to help me explore this further. So, if you can, read this and check your drums to see how many more "F" stamps are out there and what consistencies we can find among these drums. Thanks!!

Issac:

Great writing, as usual in your MyOldGuitars post.

Could the "F" also mean "Finished?"

Why didn't they continue this trend in later drums?

Interesting thoughts here. it would be nice if someone from the factory could speak up on the issue.

Re: “F” stamps inside Rogers shells


Went looking for "F" stamps and found some more in Clockface early beavertail Powertone snares with 2xxx and 3xxx serial numbers. Also in Holiday B+B snares, toms and bass drums with 23,xxx-29,xxx serial numbers.

Isaac has a beavertail Luxor with 4 digits and a B+B paper tag Dyna with the "F" stamps.

My question is for [sign in to see URL] years(approximate range) does the F fall into place from these digits?

None found in eagle badge drums or odd script late 50s era drums. [sign in to see URL]? What the "F" stamp???

My Rogers Powertone, number 3732, Sparkling Blue Pearl, 5x14, narrower rerings, (not as tall as the ones in your later pics, more similar to the first one) has the F stamp in the lower rering. This drum has an early swivo throw, which I believe was a replacement prior to my ownership. Other than that, hoops, rods, washers, are all original to my knowledge.

Thanks Bruce! You [sign in to see URL] mean rock!

Sounds like the purple stuff to me. A distinct difference for about a 3 yr run. What was it with this company and doing quirky things for a few year trial period? Damn those factory fires and the records that were lost. Keep looking and add more if you see the F. Don't hold back [sign in to see URL] that top head off!

Rogersoholic, the flat grey one in the above picture has a Holiday tag 23xxx serial number. Where is yours?

Re: “F” stamps inside Rogers shells


Gary, I was assuming that the flat bearing edge drums were before F time. That is a new discovery. RAD!!!

The latest Holiday tags that I have found are a blue onyx 22"bass drum and 13" rack tom. Cleveland numbers 45331, and 45332. Other than that, they seem most common in 2xxxx or 3xxxx numbers.

The span seems to be getting wider!

Cleveland, 8x12, Red Wine Ripple, 44893, "F" upper ring, assemblers mark on the tag is a single pen line in the decorative border.
Serials on the 14x20 are 44911, and the 16x16 is 44955, Also Cleveland, no "F" stamp.

I have a Cleveland Sparkling Blue Pearl 16x16, 51629, no "F" stamp. The other drums in this set 20-12-14x14, are close number flat gray daytons. 62xxx range, no F.

All Holiday drums.
