Possible Revolutionary War Drum

This interesting relic is currently being offered on eBay (item #110254458653). The seller, from whom I recently purchased a large pre-Civil War snare drum shell with hoops (eBay item #170214783047), reports having purchased a small vintage American military drum collection a number of years ago from which he is now offering this drum for sale.

The Seller thinks that this drum dates from the Revolutionary War and came out of upstate New York. He reports that the drum is painted and that one of the designs seems to be a snake that can be seen in the first photo along with two repairs made with tin. The drum shell is about 15-3/4" tall and 21" in diameter. The counterhoops are 2" wide.
