Original Civil War Bugle – Late War Issue
Original Civil War Bugle – Late War Issue – This bugle is the shorter iteration of a late-war bugle; essentially it is a single twist type, evidencing war period, dovetail construction, not seen on post-war bugles. There are some use dings, but the bugle remains in overall very good condition, retaining its original, period mouthpiece and a nice overall, aged patina. This bugle never had a floating garland; indeed, many Civil War bugles did not have the reinforcing garland. This is a nice example of a late war period bugle.
