    Large Civil War Single Twist Bugle with Period ID. Appears to be constructed of a silver based alloy with no sign of plating. 19" overall with what appears to be the original mouthpiece. A number of small dents, the rim of the bell somewhat wrinkled and missing the lower loop for the cord, but overall very good. A 1 ¾" X 2 ¾" ink script tag is attached near the bell stating, "Bugle used by New York Regiment in the late war donated by Corp. Moses McKinney now of this post April 3rd, 1879". A large "39' is engraved near the bell and quite possibly the number of the GAR post. Quite impressive and nice ID.
