not a scalpel.
yes the guys in 1820 used those pristine clear plastic clips to attach the tool to the display.
I really want to guess this one right so I can post a picture. Normally I'd post a shoe string or a light bulb b/c I have no idea where to find these things that y'all come up with, but I have one in mind now.
post a picture, nobody cares about the procedure. i guess em all the time and never post a picture.
Let someone guess that this thing is a foreskin remover and then I'll go.
Hemorrhoid remover ?
It was used for a common procedure during that time frame. this one is thought to have been used on both humans and animals.
It's a "Rocky Mountain Oyster" trap (i.e. an instrument used to remove testicles).
That was my next guess. However, we used to just use a pocket knife. I knew a dude who used his teeth.
Man... mention medical and we immediately get hemorrhoids, foreskins, and castration. Think a little outside the britches. They used this to perform a medical procedure that was thought to be a treatment for a host of ailments.
