    It is ultra-exciting to see a box still with!

    Halsted's

    Here is a way scarce label and contents bottle, It is embossed vertically on three panels, but the embossing is covered by the label. Time for some braille. But you can see the embossing on the front and to the right of front. It is vertical on three panels.

    Magnetic Aether,, Halsted & Co,, Rochester, NY

    On the Label: Magnetic Aether, or Fluid of Restoration,, Halsted & Co, Physicians and Chemists,, On the back: For Nervous Diseses

    Price 1 Dollar

    Hurd it thru the grapevine,,,

    Hmm,, I didn't know there was a cure for the common cold,, but I guess there was. Soaking your feet in water with wood ashes in it must have been the trick.

    Carter's Spanish Mixture

    This one has the Label and contents, plus all the exterior wrapping that says how great this stuff is. There must be 5 layers on the exterior wrap. Embossed and pontiled, but the papers cover everything. The glass is a dark green. The contents make capturing a pic of the glass color pretty tough.
