    MEDICINE bottle in box from Great grandfather store

    *takes a bow* Trust me, once I'm down that rabbit hole, I'm going right to the very end lol. I couldn't find out anything about the Com Club though, but I'm guessing it was probably some form of gentlemen's club.

    MEDICINE bottle in box from Great grandfather store

    Worth bidding?? HELP!

    Worth bidding?? HELP!
