1862 Quack Medicine Magneto Electric Machine For Nervous Disorders For Sale
1862 Quack Medicine Magneto Electric Machine For Nervous Disorders
This quack electric shock machine is identical to the Davis and Kidder Magneto. The wooden case measures 10" X 5" X 5" and has a very fancy hand crank on the front and a push-pull on/off switch on the side. The case is in fairly good shape with some dings and age marks. The label inside has the name and operating directions. The two metal handles are missing and it needs the string replaced. This is a great example of an early quack machine when people thought "If it tastes bad or causes pain, it must work!"
