This specimen is a skull prepared as a teaching tool for medical students. With its simple autopsy cut for easy removal of the skull cap, this skull is perfect for understanding the inner structure of the cranium. It also features jaw springs, for the articulation of the mandible. This individual is estimated to be a male, approximately 50 years old at the time of death. There is resorption of the mandible bone under the mandibular incisors, meaning they likely had poor dental health which caused a small amount of bone loss over time. The central mandibular incisors were lost antemortem with healing present. This individual also has some wear on their dentition, suggesting their old age. Aside from the tooth loss, this specimen is in great condition and would be great for any institution. Originally donated by an individual for the advancement of medical science, this skull has now found its way from an educational device to the public market. Responsibly sourced, beautifully preserved, and thoughtfully selected, this skull is the perfect item for the respectful bone collector or medical student.
