Lyon & Healey “Monarch” snare drum
eBay seller andrewhorning ( 0 ) [N.B. No experience points -- watch out, be careful.] is offering item no. 260522335466, described as follows:
Undated Lyon & Healey “Monarch” snare drum. Skins in mostly good condition, and are original. The snare side has been patched, and is rough/ a little dried out. Leather tug ring sleeves replaced at some point, and the old cord also looks too good to be original. Rawhide snare cords original; one pair pulled through (original) leather retainer. Everything else is too good to restore, with a great museum patina.
I have a drum very similar to this in my collection, recently sympathetically restored by George Kubicek of Yonkers, New York:

I've had another Monarch drum in my collection and it's virtually identical to the "Bell Drum" featured above. Since I have one already, and I've restored it, I will be offering this drum for sale on eBay soon.
