This is an outstanding find: Civil War / Indian War ERA amputation surgical set with all matching instruments minus a set of pliers as seen in the photo. The bullet (tweezers piece) does not have a name on it and I did not unwrap the tourniquet because it is nicely wrapped and intac. The knives are marked Feick as is the bone saw. The set was manufactured by Feick Brothers 21 Sixth Street, Pittsburgh, PA as seen on the intact label. . The set contains what you see in the photos PLUS the ORIGINAL KEY to the box. This is a real plus! The 15 inch walnut or mahogany box is in very nice condition and as stated it has the original key. Note: The pieces are original to the box and take a good look at the intact Tourniquet with the original canvas strap. The reason we say Civil war / Indian war because many of the most well-known conflicts occurred during and after the Civil War until the closing of the frontier in about 1890. I unfolded the paper inside and found a newspaper ad from May 22, 1890 enclosed. Disclaimer : This article is intended only for the collection!!! Using it for anything other than the collection is not advised. So… As the saleeer says, Help yourselves girls and boys. It is here to sell without a reserve.
