NEEDLE CASE FOR WORLD WAR ONE US ARMY MEDICAL OFFICER’S BELT:  Necessary to complete the World War One Medical Officer’s Belt, this Syringe Case is in the original Medical Department brown felt bag, and is complete with the fully functional syringe, the two needle assemblies, and the needle cleaning wires in the tube. 

The aluminum syringe case is marked “MED DEPT U.S.A.” on the face of the hinged lid.  The case is full form and the lid opens freely on the intact spring loaded hinge.  The original cotton batting cushioning material is still present inside the lid which kept the contents from rattling. 

The wool felt bags made for these syringe cases were made in at least three colors - the more common OD green, maroon - the color of branch of the US Army Medical Department, and this brown.  The maroon and brown bags are considerably scarcer than the OD green version, but frankly none of the felt bags are common, as most of these syringe cases that do surface on the market are missing the bags.  This bag has suffered from considerable mothing due to poor storage through the years, however all of the seams are intact, and the interior flap is present.  The snap closure male and female components are both present and the snap functions properly.  There is no tearing or other damage where the snap components are located on the pouch flap and body.  The mothing to this bag is primarily cosmetic, with the bag still keeping its shape and form, and considering how rare the bags are and how few of them survived, that this bag is present with this Syringe Case is a definite added value.   

Overall this is a nice complete WWI US Army Medical Department accessory that will add significantly to your Medical Officer’s Belt.  (0505)  $135
