    That's a strange one, it doesn't say anything else? I'm guessing a "wart skin" was something to be placed over a wart? Odd that there's no brand name on it. Maybe it was part of a larger set of something. I've definitely never seen one before.

    I know right? You would think that it would have been common in the day? Yah to treat warts?? Amazing how there is no info on it out there. The bottles I've been finding in this area all come out pretty mint. They are protected by a lot of carbon burnt dirt. They look pretty new coming out. I've dug in a few dumps before and the bottles come out pretty etched.. It's nice to find ones that don't really need to be polished!

    Yes! I love it! I assume when you can't find information on it, it makes it extra special and a bit more valuable.. Yah maybe it did come from some sort of custom cure kit??
