This cigar cutter scissor was recovered from the Fort Scott National Historic Site during excavations conducted there between 1968 through 1972 by Kansas Historical Society Archeologists. It was found in the Quartermaster and Subsistence Storerooms (H-12). When Fort Scott was built it was on the western military frontier, but is now located within the city limits of Fort Scott. The brass scissors were meant to rest on three "feet," one of which is now missing. The cigar cutter still opens and closes on its hinge.

Date: 1842-1853
