American Flyer 577 Circus Billboard Whistle

An American Flyer 577 circus billboard whistle made from 1946 through 1949 in C-6 (Very Good) condition. There were several variations of this accessory. This one is from mid 1947 to 1948 with the stamped steel billboard. The circus sign is a reproduction stick-on label.

The only rust is on the top of the superstructure behind the billboard. Someone had cut the wires short requiring new wires. The new wires were spliced in on the inside. It has been oiled, tested, and works good including new lamps that light up. It comes with the control button and a copy of the instruction sheet.

This is a consignment sale with no box and being sold as is.

If you have any questions regarding any specifics, please do ask. It is the eBay way.
