RARE c.1884 ACME 'The Thunderer Patent' Pea Whistle (11671)
This is a very old whistle. I have been unable to find any online with the same boxed stamp on its front--so is likely to be one from one of the first ACME pea whistle production runs.
In 1884 the ACME Thunderer, the world's first pea whistle, was launched. Offering total reliability, control and power to the referee, it is now the world's biggest selling whistle.
Still in working order! Some of the nickel silver has worn through to the brass. A wonderful piece of English history. 52mm in length x 20mm wide.
