The drums posted yesterday [Heritage Auction Galleries, Dallas, Texas, Catalog: 2008 NOV Signature Civil War Auction #6015] are from the John Henry Kurtz collection. John Henry of New York died last year I believe and tragically his collection, which he accumulated over the course of his life, is being parsed to the highest bidder, I understand by his surviving family members. Since, after looking at the beginning bids, this is the closest most of us will ever get to these things, I should add that there is a pan and zoom feature at the auction house website ... .
This should interest us poor, knowledge seeking musician types. I've already been through it in detail, and saved the images in my personal data archives with source descriptions.
