Click on an image to enlarge
If you are setting up a Civil War medical display, then here is a wonderful piece to add. This is an original Civil War era medical scarificator. This was used instead of leeches to drain blood from the body. At this time, this was state-of-the-art. The spring still works but the blades do not protrude out of the bottom. The knob like device on the moves and still works as it should. I would assume that piece would have been used to adjust the penetrating depth of the blade. The piece measures 1-3/4ths inches wide and is 1-7/8ths inches deep and 2-1/4th inches tall. This is a fantastic piece of mid-1800's Medical history.
