But if they truly don't, depending on Pearl's logos and such, you may be able to estimate what year your export is from. With my old Ludwig set, I was able to determine that it was from the early 80's because of the Ludwig logo on the drums and the color that the inner part of the shells were painted. I have no idea how Pearl has done their logos or what may be specific about their exports or even what has changed over time. But if you suspect they're old, they probably are, and there are ways of figuring how old the set may be.
You might want to find a means of contacting the company and see what they reccomend doing.

The pedal that I think came with it (it's what I got when I bought it used atleast) is an old school one. It doesn't have any rubber on it at all. I don't know if that helps or not.
Is it possible that it is pre-serial number maybe? I've heard of those, but is there a pre-model number also?
What about the year it was manufactured? Any guess on that or where to find it? I'll call them sometime this week and ask, but if you guys happened to know then that would be great.
If anybody has found any of this information on a pearl export then please tell me where you found it.
