1861 Haynes Drum Stolen on eBay for $78

Some lucky collector (8***8( 27)) just picked up a steal on eBay (item no. 170295227836) for $78: an 1861 Haynes drum (relabeled/over-stickered ca. 1881 with a Wm. E. Chandler label), 16 3/4" across and 9 7/8" tall.

Here is the evidence that it's a Haynes drum (see the word "Haynes" on the portion of the understicker visible beneath the oversticker):
