Hicks Capudine

This is a picture of two Hicks bottles I have dug a few of. The smaller one I assume was a sample embossed HICKS CAPUDINE for HEADACES. I also have the sample version that CURES HEADACHES. The larger bottle is embossed HICKS CAPUDINE FOR ALL HEADACHES, COLDS, INDEGESTION, ETC. I did not find any of them in Matt's Medicine price guide 2008. Are they just too common to be listed?? I would like to know their value? I know they are not high priced items, but I am trying to put price's on my bottles so when I pass on my children won't get rid of everything for nothing.
If you could help me out Matt I would appreciate it. If anyone out there has not bought Gunterhess's CDROM price guide you are missing out. It is incredible!  Thanks,  Marvin

    I have the larger one.  I'm interested in the small one if you have one you'd like to sell. 

    On this forum I found the following mention on the Hicks:  http://www.antique-bottles.net/forum/m-9125/mpage-1/tm.htm#9174
    ORIGINAL: Humabdos

    If your new to Bottle collecting you might find this list helpful. This list is from Antique Bottle Collector's Haven list of common (worthless) bottles.[sm=rolleyes.gif]
    I think I have everyone of these! Even though most are "worthless" I still like them!
    Happy hunting! Glen

    Aspirin
    Atwood's Jaundice Bitters, though labeled examples and sample sizes have some value.

    Watkin's (usually furniture polish or some other household product)
    Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup (but the pontilled examples are valuable).
    General tips on identifying other common/worthless bottles:

    Any bottle with "WHEATON" on the base is a reproduction.
    Medicine or whiskey bottles with no embossing and no label are typically worthless unless they come in an unusual color like citron or puce.
    Most screw cap bottles are worthless. Noteable exceptions are White House and Speas Vinegar.

    Hey Marvin, They are common. I have about 20 or so in different sizes and different embossing. It was opium so I wouldn't say the little one was a sample because there was enough in them to knock down 4 or 5 lumber jacks. The are neat bottles.
     
    Hay Mike, The gripp is a bad case of food no move after all used up, bound up, a nott in your pucker stream.

    Thank you all. I knew they were common, I just did not know how many versions of the product  there were. I have two that say  "for headaches", one that "cures headaches" (all small) and 6 of the endigestion type. Thank you very much Madman for the pics.
