    Poision Question

    I was at a flea market and ran across a little poison bottle that I had never seen before. I have about 4 sizes of this poison but none this small. It is one of those brown half square with a rounded back . It was only about 1 inch high. I have never seen one that small. I was wondering if it was rare. He wanted $50.00 I would appreciate any information.

    If it is the amber one with two flat sides meeting at a corner than a rounded back, with bumps along the corners top to bottom, it is common out here on the left coast, and we used to sell them for 5-7 dollars I don't know how valuable they are now, but, I wouldn't think even close to fifty bucks........Andy

    Thanks, Andy. It isn't rounded on the backside it is diamond shaped but it does have the bumps along the corners top to bottom. I did get it but for a lot less than 50 bucks. May be I didn't over pay to much. Thanks for the info. dfw

    Good deal, It isn't worth 50 bucks by any means, and it might be rare on the east coast. so I would think 20 dollars would be in range now.....Andy

    What size is it?
    Often "1/2" , "1/4" , "8" etc. etc. will be embossed on the base. Size in poisons makes big difference.
    Love to see a pic, include the base, and the neck if possible.
