Default Help ID horns

Can anyone ID these horns?
Bought the pair out of an old barn for $25 for the pair.
Lot more Model A and T parts in there, but so were snakes, spiders and rats.
Going back later to help him clean it up and hopefully get some more parts.

It's official...over 100 views and no one can ID these, they must be very rare and valuable.
Heading to Ebay, what do you think, $1000 each?
Hey, give me a break, I saw a pair a license plate brackets sell for over $100 not long ago.

To me, they look like aftermarket vibrator horns sold by stores such as Montgomery Wards or Western Auto, or ??? to replace faulty original Model-A horns. Since I never have a need for them, I don't follow the market for them to be able to give you a value, so I will just wish you well and hope that you get your asking price on them!!

Any markings on them? Bracket on one looks like Model A so I'd agree they're probably aftermarket replacements. $1K each is a little optimistic - maybe for the pair.

They are NOT Model A horns. I have seen a lot of horns similar to those over the years. One is a vibrator the other I can not see enough of the guts to tell if there is a motor or vibrator. I still have a couple vibrators somewhat similar but with longer bells. I do not believe they are anything special, but then again if they were you might get a good price. At this point from what I can tell you paid a fair price for them and may be you could make a few $$s, but $1000 each is extremely optimistic.

$1000 each is ridiculous. I would not go a penny over$1500 for the pair

No markings that I have found so far, the second one is a rotating motor.
I will get them both working, the rotating motor I'm almost sure is an Ooga horn, very curious about the vibration one...what will it sound like?

NOTE: You all understand that I was being facetious with my second post...right?

And that's why I appreciate the Ford Barn, helpful information with a splash of humor
