CW era non-Contract Eagle Drum

A reader (Todd) writes:

Hi Ellis, 

The drum I have measures about 17 inches in diameter, and 15 inches tall. This drum seems to have quite a bit of design.  There is a large eagle which has "E Pluribus Unum" above it.  Has arrows and olive branch in feet.  Flag on his chest with red stripes. Then also has flag on both sides of large eagle.  One flag shows eagle on half globe with 12 stars or dots around it.  I believe this may be from New York area. The other flag has a dark back ground with nine red stripes.   This drum has gotten dark over the years, I was told if it were professionally cleaned design would stand out more.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.
