These historic and coveted signaling items are almost never offered for sale. Due to it's extreme age, it is lightly rusted but contains no cracks or chips whatsoever (sandblasting makes a full and perfect restoration easy).  

At roughly 65 pounds, this is not a light item.

Offered at US$400, buyer pays shipping & handling, to be arranged after sale.

These semaphores were manufactured and installed between 1898 and 1930 on many major rail lines. A few patron railroads included the Boston and Maine, Delaware Lackawanna and Western, Michigan Central, Union Pacific, and Southern Pacific.
