It’s been slow going for sales the past 2 weeks but I got a box of newspapers dating early 1800’s for free. There is one with an article of Lincoln’s assassination but that one is particularly beat up unfortunately. These are all for sale if anyone is interested I can take better photographs. Nearly all of these are from early 1800’s and there’s about 50 papers.
I won this item at an auction this Saturday. It is an Arnold Steam Sterilizer for medical instruments with patent dated from the late 1800’s. It was made by Wilmot Castle & co in Rochester, NY. It has a US Navy stamp on the top as well. This steam sterilizer is made of heavy copper and has double walls and doors.
