Date of Manufacture: Late 20th c.
The Robert W. Jackson Arthroscopy Collection was acquired by the University of Toronto from Dr. Jackson’s family on November 12th, 2020.
This artifact was inserted into 2020.JAC.15 (170° O’Connor Operative Arthroscope) when it was received. However since the scissor tip did not reach the opening of that instrument, it was assumed that the two items do not belong together.
