I gladly bought two NOS '42-'48 drums (ones with the ribs and hub on the outside) for $130 a piece. I would have paid $150.

Your wide-five drum may bring more than the '42-'48 since there have not been an reproductions on this piece I believe.

The game has changed a bit with Bolling Bros. US-made drums, but these are all cast steel and not the pressed steel centers welded to cast "rims" like Ford and, therefore, much heavier.
