Hello to all,

I found this suitcase: " surgical instrument set facial supplemental maxillo insuries " (Barwel mfg co. inc ) for 25 euro.


She(It) contains 7 pouch to place surgical instruments there.

Could you tell me if there are 7 pouch or more?
Who used this suitcase?
There is no number. According to photos do you think that it can be a reproduction?

Hello belchi,
I think the ITEM on picture is not WW2 era.
From Medical Supply Catalog March 1 ,1944, you can see "Supplemental Instrument Set Maxillo Facial Injuries (Model 1942)" ITEM 9333000
It is not the same on the picture.
In Medic Collection, we must be accurate with regular name of ITEMS.
Caduceus with US letters on each side is certainly post war (1946-1947...
However it is not a copy, but BARWEL Mfg. Co. Inc. is not a manufacturer from WW2.
Sorry, but 25 euros is not a cruel investment. The post war era is now a big business !

Hello medicall.

Thank you for your reply.

It seemed to me that the end-of-war and post-war materials had a number. But here I can find none.

If this case is an exception, do you know why?

thank you

Hi belchi,
in 1947 until 1960, the Administration prefered "stock number" in place of "item number"
Stock number is made with 7 numbers separated in 3 blocks by dash..
I think this regulation is not applicate immediately on certains things.
The name of each item is often changing. It is very diifficult for dating.
Friendly yours.
