Notes This drum is in poor condtion. The exterior of the drum is stained, torn, and covered with gray linear accretions which could be paint drops. The top rim is peeling apart and malformed. The presence of duct tape may show evidence of the drum's fragility. The interior of the drum also has brown stains, which could indicate water marks.
