It is a silver Acme Whistle, on the front top it reads. THE ACME THUNDERER & R.C.T, On one side it has G G Greens mark of a capital G extended with 2 lines thru it, on the other side it reads. FOX LEDGE SPARTA NJ. And on the bottom of the whistle it reads. HUDSONS PATENT. It does still work and appears to be very thick silver plate.
