Where can I buy an oral, mercury thermometer....

....like from the 1950s and 60s ? We have 3 digital forehead thermometers and all three give different readings. Would like to get a baseline using a mercury thermometer. Did not see one on ebay or other websites.

Any thoughts ?

I think they’ve been banned which is probably why you’re not finding them. Maybe a medical supply store?

A google shopping search shows many places where you can purchase.
