A nice antique dental instrument grouping of eleven early S. S. WHITE explorers, drills and files, a single S. HANNETY file and an additional maker marked but unidentified explorer. (Dr. S. S. White founded his firm in Philadelphia in 1844.) All instruments are fashioned of iron, remain in nice original condition and are nicely maker marked. Of interest to the Civil War medical / dental enthusiast is that at the time of the War one of the few physical requirements of prospective recruits was that they have six upper and six lower teeth. (It has been stated that this requirement was to insure the ability to bite off the end of a black powder cartridge? ) As the Civil War period head of the fledgling American Dental Association (founded in 1859)Dr. Samuel S. White met with Abraham Lincoln with a proposal to provide dental services to the Union soldiers. No surprise in the turmoil of the War S. S. White’s proposal was lost in the shuffle. A neat Civil War dental / medical grouping. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
