[ A couple of folks have asked why this isn’t listed as an Original Deluxe. While the Deluxe models almost always came with the chrome plated base, what defined them was the jewelled trunnion screws. This key does not have the jewelled movement, therefore it is the Standard model, despite the chrome base. How it came to be like this I do not know. It is a bit of an oddball 🙂 ]

This 1948 bug is in excellent condition for its age. It has one tiny nick to the chrome along the top right edge of the base, and a couple of light tarnish spots on the arm. The shorting bar has gone AWOL, but that doesn’t affect the functionality in any way (unless you intend to connect the key to a landline telegraph).

Replacement parts and additional weights are available from Vibroplex, at surprisingly reasonable prices. You could also upgrade it to a Deluxe for around US$40, but it works just fine as it is.

The bug will be well packed for shipment, and the price is cast in concrete.
