Here it is, folks! The the world's ugliest bug. . . and I bought it. It's a chrome-plated Telegraph Apparatus Company "hole in the wall" bug. I already have a good one in my collection, so I didn't need another one. I just couldn't help myself. I felt sorry for it. It was only $20. This one's gonna be challenge. The chrome is hopelessly pitted. I'll probably sandblast and smooth out pitting in the base and then shoot it with black wrinkle finish paint. It'll never be a showpiece, but maybe I can save it from the scrap heap.
