(Gold, Presentation, Deluxe & Standard)
| The Vibroplex Original is a genuine piece of history. First patented in 1904, the Original is still manufactured today, using tools and dies very similar to those used by its inventor, Horace G. Martin, when he revolutionized the telegraph industry with his "Bug." The Bug is designed for code speeds ranging from approximately 20 wpm on the low side to 50+ wpm on the high side. Today, operators using the Original can have the same experience pioneer telegraph and railroad operators felt over a century ago. Owning this beautifully crafted instrument will link you to a great tradition. The quality and pride of ownership of a Vibroplex Bug cannot be matched. Weight 4 lbs. Cord not included. Available in
