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?
