Though the phrase "It cost and arm and a leg" was coined after Word War II, this doll paid the price much earlier that that time period. These two doll fragments were recovered from the surface of the Canville Trading Post and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1994. The Canville Trading Post was located near the Osage Reservation in Neosho County. Shown are the right arm and hand and a midsection of a leg.

Date: 1847-1872
