Looking at those needles, I'm sure the recipient would surely get a wake-up call to life after a jolt from that instrument. The instrument is well kept and still has good spring action. It comes in its original box with literature in German.Also included is a very rare full and sealed bottle of oleum as well as a book in English from 1862 titled'BAUNSCHEIDTISMUS'. The book is in decent condition with the last two pages(probably an index) missing. The box has seen better days, but is complete. Let me know if you have any questions.
