Ok here is my first question:
What kind of bongos are these and who owned them:

These bongos were given to Elvis Presley by his wife Pricilla as a holiday present shortly after they met.
They were made by a German Comapay, which by the way still exisit today, called; Johs. Link KG
These Bongos are on display at The Musical Instrument Museum in Pheonix AZ.

These once were his - now mine. Your guess is?

It says "Sonor" - the alias of Johannes Link's Company.

It looks as if they already have the tuning system from the shell´s inside, similar to what is used for framedrums.

Here is a link to a Sonor catalogue of 1982:
http://sonormuseum.com/1982percussioncatalog/1982_perc.html

On page 38 you find a follower model, where they replaced the nails with a metal strap. This strap could be fastened with a screw. You discussed about this model already:
