I AM CONSTANTLY ON A BUYING SPREE (MOSTLY ESTATE AND ANTIQUE AUCTIONS), SO I HAVE LITERALLY HUNDREDS OF ITEMS TO LIST AS FAST AS I CAN. ALL KINDS OF SMALLS AND LARGER ANTIQUES AND VINTAGE ITEMS. I WILL NOW BE LISTING DOZENS AND DOZENS OF MORE METALS, WOODS (COLLECTIBLES) AND PAPER GOODIES (ADVERTISING PIECES, CARDS, PROGRAMS, BOOKLETS, BROCHURES, BOOKS, PHOTOS & MORE). THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF VARIETY IN THESE, SO PLEASE COME BACK TO SEE THEM ALL. ALL OF THESE ARE FROM NON-SMOKING SOURCES, UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE (OTHER THAN TOBACCIANA COLLECTIBLES, OR COURSE).THESE NEXT THREE LOTS ALL HAVE VINTAGE-TO-ANTIQUE MEDICAL (QUACK MEDICINE IN THE THIRD LOT (AN EARLY WOMEN'S VIBRATOR KIT)) & SURGICAL EQUIPMENT (IN THE FIRST TWO LOTS). I ACQUIRED THESE FROM A RECENT ESTATE SALE, WHERE THE GENTLEMAN WAS A LONG TIME TOWN DOCTOR AND HIS WIFE WAS A NURSE. I'LL ALSO BE LISTING LOTS MORE MEDICINES, VIALS, MEDICAL KITS, DOCTOR'S BAGS & MORE OVER THE NEXT MONTH OR TWO, SO PLEASE COME BACK FOR MORE GOODIES. IN THE MEANTIME, IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR MORE MEDICAL RELATED COLLECTIBLES, PLEASE VISIT MY EBAY STORE (Antique Apothecary/Medicines) & (Vintage Scientific/Medical).OK, SO HERE IT IS...IT'S BEEN ABOUT THREE - FOUR YEARS SINCE I'VE HAD AN EARLY "HYSTERIA" MACHINE (THESE EARLY VIBRATORS WERE USED TO TREAT HYSTERIA IN LADIES (LOOK IT UP, IT'S FASCINATING). THIS ONE IS FROM THE "NATIONAL ELECTRIC INSTRUMENT CO., INC., OF LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y." AND IT COMES IN ITS ORIGINAL BOX. THE OUTSIDES OF THE BOX SHOW MODERATE WEAR (FOR A BOX OF ITS AGE), AND THE BOX OPENS AND CLOSES (AND STAYS CLOSED) WELL. ALL IN ALL, THE OUTSIDES ARE STILL IN VERY GOOD CONDITION, OVERALL.THE INSIDES INCLUDE THE ORIGINAL PAPER (WITH COMPLETE(?)) INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOW THE KIT SHOULD WORK (PLEASE DECIDE THAT FOR YOURSELF, AS I'M NOT SURE (EITHER WAY)). THE INSIDES SHOW LESS WEAR THAN THE OUTSIDES (WHICH IS TYPICAL) AND THEY ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION, OVERALL. HOWEVER, THE PAPER ON THE INSIDE TOP COVER HAS YELLOWED AND ALSO HAS MOISTURE (or WATER) STAINS, AS SHOWN. AS FOR THE CONTENTS OF THE KIT, PRETTY MUCH ALL OF THE CORDS ARE COMPLETELY USELESS NOW (BRITTLE AND CRACKING / BRAKING OFF). THERE IS ALSO A QUITE MELTED BLACK GOO (DRIED AND HARD TO THE TOUCH (AND NOT STICKY)) ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BOX (STUCK TO THE BOX, ALSO). TO BE CLEAR, I'VE NOT ATTEMPTED TO PUT ANY OF THIS TOGETHER, AS IT WAS INTENDED. I BELIEVE MOST, IF NOT ALL, OF THE PARTS ARE HERE, BUT PLEASE ALSO USE YOUR JUDGMENT ON THIS. I PERSONALLY FOUND IT INTERESTING THAT THE "HEADS" ON THE TWO BROWN "WANDS" ARE "MORE LIFELIKE" THAN OTHERS I'VE SEEN IN THIS CATEGORY. JUST A THOUGHT...AS A RULE, I DON'T ALTER OR MODIFY MY AUCTIONS TO BECOME (or ALLOW FOR) BUY-IT-NOW LISTINGS. SO, THESE THREE WILL RUN AS AUCTIONS ONLY. THANKS!THE PICTURES ARE TO BE CONSIDERED AS PART OF THE DESCRIPTION. PLEASE REVIEW THEM FOR A BETTER IDEA OF VARIETY AND CONDITION, AND I WOULD BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE. ENJOY!SHIPPING WILL BE CALCULATED AND INSURED USPS PRIORITY, AND I WOULD BE MORE THAN WILLING TO COMBINE SHIPPING. I DON'T OFFER A RETURN POLICY, BUT, I WILL STAND BEHIND MY LISTINGS. IF I MAKE A MISTAKE ON MY LISTING, OR I MISUNDERSTAND AN ITEM OR MISS A RELEVANT FLAW ON THE ITEMS UP FOR BID, I WILL DO ANYTHING IN MY POWER TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT FOR THE BUYER, SO BID WITH CONFIDENCE!!!THANKS FOR LOOKING!
