Antique Regimental Civil War Drum

Experts in the drum community, please feel free to comment.  Share your comments on this drum.  If it's original, was it simply not finished (even to the point of not painting in the usual information on the banner)?  The emblazonment looks so clean and the counterhoops so fresh as to suggest that if it is original, it's never been used.  But, is it CW?
