WORLD WAR ONE US ARMY MEDICAL DEPARTMENT SUTURE NEEDLES dtd 1917:  A full, unopened package of World War One vintage US Army Medical Department issued Surgical Suture needles such as were supplied to the Battalion Aid Stations and the Field Hospitals.  This khaki colored paper packet measures 4.75” long and 2.5” wide and is printed on the front, “12 Kidney & Liver Needles; L.O.S.M. & S. Supplies;, No. 144, Curved; R-F Co., Inc., Contract, October 30, 1917”.  The closing tab on the reverse is printed, “RANFAC; Boston-USA”.  Inside the outer packet is a wax paper wrapper containing the 12 needles.  I have opened a packet to photograph the contents, however the packet you will receive is sealed and in like-new, unissued condition.  These early US Army medical supplies are getting harder to find as time passes and before long I expect they will completely disappear from the collector’s market.  This is a great opportunity to add to your Great War medical display.  $20
