From an Eastern Shore estate, for auction is an outstanding World War I Officer's field medical/surgical kit. This kit has approximately 12 different instruments including a set of scalpals dated 1912 and original catguts dated 1902. The canvas pouch is in outstanding condition and I personally do not believe that this kit was ever used. I've included many photographs for your review below. No reserve!
