CIVIL WAR ERA TIN ARM SPLINT - SCARCE EARLY MEDICAL PIECE:  The sort of collectable that appears rarely on the market, this tin arm splint is the type known to have been used during the Civil War era.  

This splint retains its full form and has survived the passage of time in remarkable condition, measuring 9 on the longer segment, and 4 on the shorter, and 4 wide at the angle.  The edges are rolled so as not to cut the patient and the shorter end is slightly spread to accommodate the size of the upper arm.  The surface of the splint is overall smooth with some very minor areas of light pitting.  The soldered joint between the two segments is intact with no breaking or weakening.   

Overall this splint is in excellent condition and would be an interesting addition to a Civil War display.   $175
