A very, very good condition Hudson whistle produced/issued 1918.
Standard Hudson marking with good clear date and the subdued ‘anodised’ finish correct to this year of manufacture.
This particular whistle is the best of its type I have had to offer. Because of the change in manufacturing material for this year of manufacture ‘it’ was prone to corrosion. This example is corrosion free and with 95% plus of its original finish. The leather fob has split at to button hole fitting.
A very nice example.
After four years of war, it ‘was thought’ a good idea to produce a whistle in a none ‘bright’ finish, hence this brown look that was on all 1918 produced items.
