There's probably a small ridge of rust blocking the drum from coming off. The area where the shoes rub against the drum are smooth and the area outside of this has been exposed to the elements, water, dirt, etc., and have built up enough to provide a small barrier that might be hitting the brake shoes.

You might be able to see it if you get a bright light and can get in to look towards the inside of the drum. A puller will help. Or you might try tapping the drum off. But be careful so you don't crack or break the drum.
