Manufacturer: American antique

This little pasteboard box measures approximately 3 X 7/8 X 7/8" and remains in fine original and untouched condition after decades of attic trunk storage. The original label identifies the original content as 1 DOZEN SUPERIOR METALLIC COMBS. Such little steel combs were offered as moustache combs and with their durability and fine teeth were pressed into service to eradicate pesky lice in hair and beard. Many a country trooper who had never encountered such critters found that the presence of body lice was a common challenge when large numbers of men marched and camped together in warm climate. Little fine toothed combs of hard maple wood or steel, if you could afford better, seemed the best way to separate pest from host and were a popularly requested item from home. A neat Civil War personal item display item. please note: ALL ITEMS ARE CURRENT & AVAILABLE UNLESS MARKED SOLD!! If you are new to our catalog and wish additional ordering information or just to learn who we are, please check out our home page. Thanks for visiting our catalog!!
