What are reasonable prices for the three types of whistles, in good shape with chains?

Anybody?

Thanks

Reasonable to me be would be about 10 bucks, but im cheap. :lol:
I picked up all of mine at flea markets and antique stores and the
most expensive one I paid for cost me 15 bucks. Now, if you by them off
epay expect to 15 to 30 bucks. http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/thumbdown.gif

Here are a couple OD plastic whistles that I have. It's hard to see in my pic, but the Navy whistle has a large P with smaller EI inside of a shield. Both have cork peas. Thanks, Al Hirschler in very hot Dallas.

You have the Horstman London Bobbie whistle, not the siren.

very nice, I love this one. Still looking for Siren model.

Based on a recent post #3 above it's a BRASS KINGLET WHISTLE ...

The Company Commander would have this in WW1.

You are correct, although Horstman made them as well, that's what mine are.

Picked one up today just like yours.  Is your chain magnetic?  Mine is.  What ID's it to the USMC?  Thanks, Al.

I have a number of brass whistles from WW2. Listed as accordingly, US Army Regulation, Official Military and Military. I also have some unmarked perhaps the imprint didn't come out during manufacturing or there was another company that simply didn't mark their equipment. The pictures of the unmarked has an unusual chain loop that's not rounded as most whistles or coned shape like the US Army Regulation type. Any idea on who were these other manufacturers besides Meyers?

I don't think the Meyer co. Used that logo during ww1. I have seen them on various ww2 and post products. It was likely used for British troops and other first response agencies during ww2. Really nice piece there you have.
