    Civil War Regulation Infantry Regiment Drum by Ernest Vogt, Philadelphia, Contract of 1864. 16 ½-inches in diameter, 15 ½-inches high. This 1864 manufactured drum features a large hand-painted eagle and shield with a banner captioned "Regt. U.S. Infantry". The drum has round-head brass tacks arranged in designs around the vent hole. There are two paper labels on the inside of the shell, one over the other. The bottom label is the manufacturer's label "Ernest Vogt, manufacturer of Drums, Banjos, Tambourines, &c. No. 225 Beaver Street, Philadelphia, Contract, December 29, 1864"; the upper label, the retailer's label reads "H. S. Hartogensis / Sporting Goods, Musical / Instruments, Etc. / 600 E. Baltimore St." The rope and leather ears appear original, as do the skins. Part of a contract issued by the government in 1864 for 2,000 drums.

    Condition: Very good. With the usual scuffs and scratches associated with light wear and over a hundred years of storage.
