Civil War Period Single Twist Bugle
This brass is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-06-01)
Price : US $801.99
This is a single twist copper bugle with brass reinforces. This one is right out of the attic. The bugle measures 15 inches in length, and there is no mouthpiece. This bugle has what appears to be a brass garland on the bell, but it seems to be rather crudely made. The bell itself is missing a small crescent shaped piece out of the bell, almost as if it was made this way. (see photo number 4). The bell is approximately 5 1/2 inches across. Condition: This piece is attic black. The bell has some dents, and there are more dents at the curved areas. There is a seam, but it does not seem to be dovetailed in the traditional way. There appear to be no holes or splits, other than the one missing piece mentioned. There is no maker's mark. This is a very interesting bugle, unlike any I have seen.
