Original U.S. WWI Military Brass Bugle with Mouthpiece
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice U.S. WWI Issue Military Bugle, complete with the original mouthpiece, still chained to one of the hanger rings. The bugle is made completely of brass, and is most likely in Eb or G, the usual key that bugles of the time were pitched in. The bell shows a brazing seam around the flare, which is easier to see on the inside of the bell.
Condition is very good, with denting and wear commensurate with service and age. We did not test the bugle in any way, but there is no reason that it should not work.
A great piece of WWI militaria, ready to display, or possibly even use!
The word bugle in the United States is often used as a generic term for many types of horns including the instruments used by the armed services, drum and bugle corps and by various other organizations such as the Boy Scouts. Nevertheless, bugles have always been specified correctly by the armed services and the suppliers and manufacturers of these instruments as either bugles (a conical bore natural horn) or as a field trumpet (a cylindrical bore natural horn over 2/3rds of its length).
