    Check out these "ultra rare" Poisons HAHAHA! I guess in some parts of the country "ultra rare" and "completely common" are synonyms [:D]

    Bah Humbug! First time and not a good experience.

    Hey All! Just checking to see how your Christmas Exchange went. I sent my partner a bottle and it is now January 16th…nothing received on my end. I was trying to be super understanding, but really?! A month later and nothing. My bottle plus shipping was almost $30. Guess I won't be...

    Looking for….family dairy My family had a dairy from the early 1900s to approx. 1930. It was located in Dixon, CA and was called the Dutra Dairy. If anyone comes across anything from this diary, I would love to purchase it. Unfortunately, my family does not have any artifacts from the family...

    KC-1 Variant??

    I have a cobalt 3 3/8" KC-1, but very faintly (and crudely) on the shoulder the word poison is embossed. Is this a more valuable variant? I don't see many KC-1s with this embossing and my poison bottle workbook does not mention anything about this. Any help is greatly appreciated. Mike

    New Poisons Arrived in the Mail Today

    Hey All. Picked up these two new poisons and I am having trouble "id"ing them. In my Rudy Kuhn workbook, the BOLIC DISINFECTANT is KC-68, although, my ribbing is a bit different and the word SANO is embossed above the BOLIC. Is this the KC-68 but a variant? The other bottle is embossed PURO...

    Sick of eBay shipping! What is the deal?

    I am curious as to why sellers think it is ok to charge buyers 8, 9, 12, even $15 to ship tiny poison bottles. I mean, come on. I am a seller too and a little bubble wrap and a small box does the trick. Shipping for a couple ounce poison bottle should be like $4. I am reluctant to buy some...

    New Local Medicine from Santa Cruz, CA

    I "typically" only collect poisons, but I am making an exception these days for any bottle that I can find that is embossed Santa Cruz, CA. I think it is really special to collect bottles that come from where you live. Sometimes you learn something new and sometimes you are reminded of the old...

    Fillingham Grantham Codd Bottle Value? ID?

    Another aqua codd I picked up at a flew market. It is embossed with FILLINGHAM GRANTHAM on the front, and the back lower portion is embossed with "PATENT SAFE GROOVE 4 SOLE MAKERS DAN RYLANDS BARNSLEY". It has a pretty crude application of the lip with lots of seeds.

    Buckley's Brewery Codd What is it? Value?

    Greetings all. I went to a flea market recently and picked up a nice aqua coddle bottle. It is embossed with "Buckley's Brewery Limited", "LLANELLY" and "Trade" (The Brewery Logo) "Mark". The base has a cool script "B". Any ideas as to where this bottle is from and the value? Thanks! -Mike
