So I decided to start a new thread on the subject.

What is your "holy grail", and is it the same as it was a year or two ago? Mine changed I think. I'm thinking that now my holy grail would be a large sized cobalt blue NH pharm, heavily embossed, and from a small town as opposed to one of the big towns that have multitudes of pharmacies.

For me, my holy grail would be "any" cobalt blue western soda. I've been collecting western soda's for about 10 years now, I have not been lucky enough to dig one the few times I've been out digging and every time I bid on one on eBay it quickly goes out of my price range. There are some common cobalt westerns that typically sell for about 150 to 200 bucks. Someday my time will come. I do have a cobalt blob top that say's only "Mineral Water" in an arch. I see them at bottle shows, sometimes they come in green. No one seems to know if that is a western soda or not.

I'm starting to really like the small town pharmacy botttles as well. I live in Contoocook NH and have a druggist bottle with our town and the druggists name. I also have some from Concord and Henniker.
Cobalt, large and embossed......Sounds good to me. Peace T.

There are three bottles from my ancestor that I would like to get.
Pontiled Ransom's King Of The Blood
Halbert's Infallible Kidney & Liver Remedy (variant has "stomach" embossed)
Dr Hedge's Ague Annihilator

I'm also looking for the 2 lb milkglass Trask's Liniment jar (not to be confused with his other product, Trask's Magnetic Ointment)

Page & Apfel's Kidney & Liver Cure Victoria, Texas.
It is from the town where I live but nobody here has ever seen one. It is pictured in Bill Agee's Cure book so at least one specimen exists.

That's a hard question! I've been looking for a Dr. Kopp's sample bottle for awhile now.

I'm not too picky. I'd be happy to just dig one North Bend ,Tippecanoe cabin or an unlisted, beaded or ribbed edge, midwestern historical flask in bright green..

~Teal 'Sanderson's Druggist, Bradford Pa'~

By the way,...I wasn't even aware this bottle existed...until a few years ago. it's aprox. the color of a Hall's hair renewer, somewhere between peacock and teal,... about lockport blue/green. It has a large square form, more like an early med, (think Compound of Hops and Boneset)...It's about 5 inches tall, with a tapered applied collar, it's loaded with whittle and I've seen this bottle once only. It looks almost pontil era, although it's not pontilled, I didn't know our town had anything but your standard fare pharmacy and druggist bottles.Also I've never seen any reference to this druggist in our history books.

I'm glad this thread took off! I wondered if everyone already had the grail!

I will look for these bottles mentioned above. I get a lot of pleasure out of "finding" stuff for folks. I should have been a car salesman.

I would like to find a whole "Little Giant Cattarh Cure". We dug a piece of it this winter. Gunther said they were pretty rare. It was a beautiful yellow color. Anyone have a picture of a whole one? Thanks.
