Vintage boxed real human partial medical skeleton
This is a very nice example of a real human medical skeleton. From the box and the condition of the bones it appears to be a mid 20th Century example.
Within the box is a complete half human skeleton including the skull, spine, all the ribs, sternum, clavicle, scapula, half pelvis, femur, tibia, fibula, patella, bones of the foot, humerus, radius, ulna, and bones of the hand. Overall the condition of the skeletal parts is excellent. All the bones of the hand and foot are intact and strung together with nylon line.
The skull is also in good condition although some of the teeth are missing which is normal for these partial skeletons. The cranium is detachable with the hooks to hold it in place still present as are the springs that articulate the lower jaw.
Each bone has been individually marked R52 as has the box. This must be the reference number of the skeleton in a medical collection and to ensure that all the correct bones from the same skeleton remained together.
Overall this is great specimen and in excellent condition.
