Lot 424: Attractive Civil War US regulation eagle snare drum, measuring 16.5? in diameter and 15? tall, featuring the standard colorful painting of an eagle carrying a banner in its mouth that reads, "Reg't U. S. Infantry." Retains the original interior manufacturer's paper label visible through the air hole, reading, "Manufactured by A. Rogers Flushing, L. I." All hardware appears to be original. In very good condition, with general wear and scuffing to paint, and soiling to drumheads. A fantastic example of this sought-after style of Civil War military drum.
