This is without a doubt, the finest condition drum we have ever handled and it is in "world-class" condition. It is filthy dirty, but retains 98% of its original hand painted eagle motif. It still retains original heads and snare with a perfect makers label in the interior -"William Hall & Son/Manufactures of MILITARY and Toy drums/Musical Instruments/543 Broadway/New York". Hall received a Federal contract for regulation drums in 1861. The rope and a few leathers appear to have been replaced during its period of use. This drum is outstanding.
