    Just purchased this type of usual vintage Pearl K050 with unusual yellow logo.
    Second rarity is that the back side is without logo.
    Never seen before.

    Is there anybody here who knows about this key or owns it indeed?

    Can't say I've seen one with a yellow logo before, I'll have to have a look through mine to see if I've got one. The missing logo from the back isn't a rarity, it's just that it's fallen off - it's an old used key.

    The yellowing could be from the effects of aging.
    By the looks of it that key has been around.

    This is one of my keys. Looks A little
    Yellow to me. I think light has an
    effect on the material Pearl used.

    Hope you didn't pay too much! I think your "rarity" is just an old drum key.

    How much did you pay for it?

    I am back with this Pearl drum key with yellow logo. Now the key came to me and I could make my own and better pictures. And I think I was right.
    Here are three pictures of three various Pearl K050 keys. First one is the chrome version, second one golden version (both with white logo) and third one is this key we discussed. If you look at it you can see, that this third key´s logo looks a little bit different - it is more rendered, more detailed and sharper. And the yellow color is not from aging and not due to flash light. Pictures were made without using flash. IMO it is an older or oldiest version of this type of Pearl key and I will contact Pearl (thru my friend collector in Japan) to ask about it.

    And Trush yu´re right - it´s only an old used key (but for me very valuable)

    You're definitely correct in that the font is slightly different; older in style, if you will.

    But my money is still on the yellow being an effect of aging. Either on the clear material or on the printing beneath.
