    Description

    Civil War Field Surgeon's Pocket Instruments Often times when administering to the fallen soldier in the heat of battle a surgeon's pocket instrument case was a necessity. Here we offer a 10 instrument set held by maroon velvet cloth and neatly wrapped in leather pouch. All would have fit nicely into a pocket to be carried into battle. Of some of the pieces, most recognizable are artery forceps, a grooved director, parts of catheters and a probe, along with items you would find in most emergency kits today. The leather is worn but still folds over the instruments nicely. Some of the instruments should be noted as having minimal spots of rusting. Although there is no identifying mark as to Union or Confederate, the piece was purchased by the owner from Rebacres in Raphine, VA, who certified it to be Confederate.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
