Charles C. Clapp 1861-1862 Drum Maker

eBay seller rbrtram60ni ( 120) is offering item no. 180449003321 described as follows:

I'm listing a wonderful period untouched Civil War Drum, that is all original including the heads of the drum. It does need a little TLC though. A little re-stringing would make it look alot nicer. It does have the maker's mark, that you can see through the peep-hole that I took a picture of. The maker is Charles C. Clapp, who was out of Boston Ma. He had contracts in 1861-1862 to supply several Massachusetts militia units with bugles and drum heads.
