Need Info - James W. Drake Drum
A reader asks:
Looking for some guidance on getting an appraisal on a civil war drum that has been handed down through the family.
The owner user was James W. Drake. There is a handwritten note from his immediate family on the skin. The drum manufacturer is A.G. Peters & Sons (stamped on the inside of the drum).
We have researched James Drakes military records through the U.S. National archives.
Thanks for any guidance you can offer.
