Here is a reproduction outer pack for Excelsior Brand Surgeons Needles, ½ dozen, 3/8 circle, size 20 (US Medical Department item 33971).
Produced by Andrew Bower from scans of an original item found in a medical officers case.
The PDF needs to be printed at 100% scale in order to obtain correct size.
Original packet was made from white paper. The original item also contains an inner pack made from translucent waxed paper that contained the needles. I hope to reproduce the inner pack shortly.
Thanks to Ben Major for his help and resizing the PDF and milsurvive for the information provided.
Made to be shared free for historical re enactment and not to be sold or used for commercial purposes.
I have included photos of the original item as well as the reproduction.
Any comments welcome.
