American Antique Medicines – Bottle Guide

Read Jim Schmidt’s post at CIVIL WAR MEDICINE (AND WRITING)

“When I first started collecting medicines I looked for price guides but could only find books [which were] very generic and not very reliable or books [that] mostly covered high end bottles I never found at flea markets and couldn’t afford. I just wanted a way to know what price I should expect to buy or sell medicines for.”
