Listed here is a lot of 5 vintage OHAUS Apothecary Scale Weight Sets with a combined total of 85 weights and 5 Tweezers in the original storage boxes. These sets are measured in Apothecary weight system and include Ounces, Drams, Scruples, and Grams. The 17th weight in the middle of each set is a Half Scruple weight.The weights included are genuine, but may be from other boxes, as I have a lot of these sets and I got them with some pieces that had fallen out of the sets. I had to put them back in one by one and the weights may not be paired with the original boxes. No fractional weights or parts missing from pictures are provided because I simply do not have them. I put the sets back together as carefully as I could, so examine the pictures closely to make they have the weights you seek inside, as I very well may have accidentally goofed up the weights in the boxes. Keep in mind that you are guaranteed the set shown in the pictures and there should be no mixup. All five boxes have working hinges and they have latches on the front that swing shut, with some latches locking more firmly than the others. Some hinges have greeze corrosion on the inside but do not seem to affect the integrity of the boxes.
There is also quite a bit of dust inside these boxes as they were very recently pulled out of storage - I believe these sets have been unused for several decades. The insulating piece on the inside of the boxes falls down when the box is opened but I assume this is normal since all the sets I have do that. Some of the weights pictured has dark oxidation on them, and some may have little specks of green corrosion. This is old corrosion and I do not think it is advancing at all.
A few of these boxes did not have tweezers in them and I transferred them in from other boxes I had available.
