How much is this antique steam whistle worth?

An old man came by and gave my husband an old steam whistle. Another old man came by and wanted to buy it for him for about $100. The one who wanted to buy it only saw the very bottom of it before he got excited about the item. It's really cool, is single tone, in good condition, the handle isn't broken, and it has an acorn top. There is an identical whistle here: http://www.prices4antiques.com/science-technology/mechanical-devices-other/Mechanical-Steam-Whistle-Brass-Cylinder-Acorn-Finial-D9801530.htm

How much is it worth?

  • You need to have it appraised. Try taking it to an antique appraisal shop, you'll get a more accurate answer.
