Note: The first photo is the BOTTOM of the BOX. I will have this photo corrected before tomorrow night, so it will show the TOP of the box with the NAME PLATE!!!

This is an INCREDIBLE FIND!!! I was told this is a VERY EARLY and VERY RARE, ANTIQUE CIVIL WAR ERA, George Tiemann & Co. FIELD MEDICAL SURGICAL KIT with ORIGINAL wooden case!!! T is a name in PENCIL at the bottom that looks like DR.___ H FLAGG ___ MASS....I tried to do some research and in 1861 t IS mention of a DR. FLAGG in the CIVIL WAR...Whether this is the same one or not....I don't know......but just wanted to give you that bit of information I found..If you enlarge my photo and KNOW what you are looking for, you might be able to read this writing....either way..............................THIS PIECE IS IN FANTASTIC CONDITION and I believe COMPLETE!!!!!!!!.......with some of the tools having some rust but mostly in amazing shape..EACH of the WHITE TOOLS ARE MARKED with the G.Tienann & CO mark....The kit is lined in the ORIGINAL PURPLE VELVET...and the top inside of the box retains the ORIGINAL George Tienmann label as well as THE ORIGINAL CLOTH LOOP to pull the velvet cover out!!..The inside top FITS INSIDE the lid with 2 small metal pieces that slip into the side of the box securing it in place and it has a latch that when moved to the side, reveals the rest of the instruments inside...!!!!!I believe that this kit IS COMPLETE...but this is not my area of expertise so it is being sold as I found it...JUST FANTASTIC!~~~The box has a latch in the front that moves and secures the box so it doesn't open in travel..! The wooden box is in EXCELLENT condition! T is a long piece that looks like bakelite with 2 spoon like ends and a criss cross design in the middle. This piece is marked G.Tiemann & CO!!!!!

T is another piece that looks like a long thin metal piece with a ring end. I have NO IDEA what that would be for. The bakelite piece along with this long rod are in the back space of the box along with a piece of material that was included in it..It looks like a piece of a CIVIL WAR UNIFORM...but again, I am not sure..It is just a FANTASTIC PIECE OF HISTORY...and this box is sooooooooooooooooo very rare to find with ALL THESE INSTRUMENTS IN IT!!! I have no idea WHAT THE INSTRUMENTS ARE or WHAT THEY WERE USED FOR!!!

The top of the box has a name plate, but I don't see a name on it...!

THIS IS AN ANTIQUE...circa TURN OF THE CENTURY!!! .......This is NOT A REPRODUCTION...and is a recent ATTIC FIND!!!

It measures 6 3/4" LONG X 3 1/2" DEEP X 1 1/2" HIGH. On the bottom of the box, it looks like it says something like DR. .... FLAGG.....MASS...JUST A FABULOUS PIECE of the PAST!! Highest bidder to pay shipping (see calculator)
