This seldom found quack pendent is called the Sagendorph’s Battery that when worn around the neck would cure nearly any disease.  It is stamped “Sagendorph’s Battery” and “Patented Jan. 17, 1878”.   A more common pendent was called the Boyd’s Battery.  In one of Boyd’s books, he states that two of his employees stole the idea and began on a limited production a duplicate called the Sagendorph’s Battery.  The Sagendorph’s Battery Pendent is rarely found and was a competitor for Boyd in this era of amazing cure all quack medicine advertising that their magnetic devices could cure most medical impediments.  Professional collectors know of the Boyd and this seldom found Sagendorph’s Battery pendent.
