    They are common but still a classic medicine. One of the first medicines I ever dug.
    Never have found an aqua one. Maybe someday.

    I hope that's not all you got for helping to paint the house! ..unless you were just holding the ladder..[;)]
    I know they're not scarce, but I like them.. handsome bottles.. the first bottle I ever bought was a Paine's!

    Common bottle, but still a classic. Every collection should have one, along with a Hostetter's and Warner's Safe Cure.

    At least thats what I tell myself since I have all three.

    GuntherHess,

    The aqua Paine's are Canadian as far as I can tell. I was talking to some fellows that dig up in St. John, New Brunswick, and they dig the aqua ones pretty often but had never dug the amber ones.

    That's interesting. I havent seen any actually dug so I have no data on them in the US. They are much less common than the amber ones here, maybe 1 out of 100 is aqua.
    I still wouldnt mind finding one even if they are Canadian.
