Asylum whistles have been attracting very large prices, one having been auctioned off for about 800 dollars the fall of 2012. since then it has not abated, hoever it may be to just a very few or even a couple of buyers !! We have only found tube-shaped, sometimes beaufort-shaped whistles with the asylum stamp. These type have specific stamps of the names of the asylums they were issued to. Sometimes they were only made with the initials of the clinic. For example, Mental Health Clinic "M.H.C.", and then associated with a specified location or building. So far, only UK asylum whistles have been recorded. Perhaps others will surface in other countries.
