Maple wood body meas. approx. 14.50 inches tall x 14.50 inches wide. Body is plain except for a cut brass star attached over the view-hole. Cut into the five arms of the star are the letters “M-A-I-N-E.” This star meas. 4.00 x 4.00 inches and is tacked to the drum at each point and at center with small brass roundhead tacks. This central star is in turn surrounded by 13 smaller brass stars each meas. 0.50 x 0.50 inch. The wood body retains its original finish with only minor scuffs and surface dirt. There are no cracks.

Each end of the drum has a red hoop which both show some light wear and each has approx. 95% of the original paint. Heads and ropes appear to be replacements while the leather ears look to be original.

Still attached to the drum is the thin leather sling, in somewhat dry but complete condition. The base of the drum also has brass mounts that hold the snares in position.

No maker’s label remains in the interior.

Drum is in overall very good condition with attractive, simple decoration.
