MODEL 1907 US ARMY CARLISLE FIRST AID PACKET DATED 1918 PAPER WRAPPED PACKET FOR THE POCKETED MEDICAL PERSONNEL BELTS:  This paper wrapped Model 1907 US Army Carlisle First Aid Packets is identical in content to those packaged in the brass containers with the pull rings, however these paper packets and the later canvas wrapped packets were intended for issue to Medical Department personnel and were to be carried in the multi-pocketed Mills Medical Belts.  As a result of the paper vs. metal packaging, these individual dressing packets did not survive the passage of time as well, and are considerably scarcer today than those packaged in the brass containers.   

This packet is dated July 26, 1917, the date of the contract, and was manufactured by Bauer and Black of Chicago, Illinois.  The packet is full form, the outer paper wrapping is fully intact with all the edges still sealed, and it is in excellent condition, showing no evidence of having been issued or carried.   

These have become scarce on the market, and whether for your Doughboy outfit or your Medical display, this is a good example of the first aid packets carried by the medical personnel who attended to the troops in the trenches in Europe.  (1004)  $75
