3 ply drum. Outer ply appears mahogany, or possibly maple if re-finished. If re-finished this would be easy to tell with the hoops off. Looks to be an old marching drum.
I don't know about the innermost ply but most of the day were a combo of either mahogany-poplar-mahogany, or maple-poplar-mahogany.

I have seen a 50's single-tension Slingerland bass that was an outer mahogany ply over a Masonite shell, with re-rings. It had hoop mounted spurs.
Strangest thing I ever saw.
