About

 

This is a B.G.I. Co. (Bridgeport Gun Implement Company) # 601 bullet shaped whistle. Patent November 29, 1881. The 601 has attributes of a round whistle with one window, but with the characteristic of a diaphragm inside rather than a fipple at the mouthpiece. It's unclear how long this whistle was manufactured, but it disappears and becomes rarer at the turn of the century when union hardware takes over. It is a very high-quality whistle, sometimes surfaced, and very high-pitched.

Dimensions: Approx. 2” x ¾” x ¾”

Episode: Season 13, Episode 25 “Wound Up Rick”.

Note: Cosmetic flaws to the exterior of the whistle due to aging. Whistles have natural wear & tear such as scratches, scruff and dings due to being preowned.
