    Civil War Bugle with Original Key Change Loop and Mouth Piece. Exceptional example, marked by Stratton & Foote / New York. 19 1/4" overall including mouth piece. Body of the bugle fabricated of copper, with brass ferrules and brass floating rim. Traces of dovetailed seam visible on bell. The key change loop and mouth piece are of brass. Nicely marked in small block letters with single die stamp, "Stratton & Foote / New York" on bell. Very nice overall condition with just some dents on the lower horizontal portion of the single loop, and an old, neat solder reinforcement where the upper horizontal attaches to the body. All minor and very nice as is or easily repaired if so desired. An unquestionable period example, with Stratton & Foote having received numerous contracts from the US government during the Civil War . Very desirable, rarely encountered fine, complete condition.
