OFFERED FOR AUCTION IS AN IMPRESSIVE RARE ANTIQUE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR ERA FIELD DRUM. LARGE WOODEN DRUM MEASURES 24 1/4" HIGH AND 25" IN DIAMETER. DECORATED WITH BRASS TACKS IN A ROUND PATTERN AROUND THE VENT HOLE. THERE IS SMALL BRASS HARDWARE ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE. I BELIEVE IT HAS WHAT'S LEFT OF THE ORIGINAL SKIN HEADS AND EARLY TIGHTENING ROPES WITH LEATHER. RIMS ARE STAINED WITH OLD BLUE PAINT. INSIDE THERE IS WRITING AND A FRAGMENT OF AN EARLY NEWSPAPER, AS SHOWN IN LAST PHOTOS. I COPIED THE WRITING ON A SHEET OF WHITE PAPER-SEE VERY LAST PHOTO. NO CRACKS IN BODY, JUST PERIOD WEAR. A BEAUTIFUL RARE DRUM OF CIVIL WAR TIMES.
