Antique Apothecary Pharmacist Weight Set for Balance Scale made by Frederick Stearns & Co. It has 2 separate sets of weights, one in ounces and scruples and one in grams.
There are also two coin shaped weights, one marked "One Drachm" and one marked "Two Drachms", which are equivalent to 1/8 oz. Each set is missing one weight as seen by the 2 empty holes.I assume there is a similar cover to the one marked "1/2" Scruple that is missing from the hole next to it, and there may have been a few smaller weights in those compartments originally. There is also a set of tweezers in a slot in the box. The box is marked Frederick Stearns & Co. On the top of the lid, although it is hard to make out.
For size reference, the box measures about 6.5" x 3.75" x 2. Condition is as seen in photos. Scratches, dings, and other wear to the wooden box.
There is a crack on the bottom, but it doesn't seem to be a structural issue. The weights have scratches, tarnish, and other wear. Please take a look and feel free to ask any questions. The item "Antique Frederick Stearns & Co.
