Found all of these bottles at an estate sale. I paid $5 for big & $2 for small. I went back yesterday & bought 17 more, including 4 Florida Coca-Cola bottles. Looking forward to reading & learning about their values.

I do, here you go. I put all 4 on eBay (listed at only $8-10) to try to recover some of the $$ I spent, so hoping they sell :)

Looks like you got a couple of really good ones there! The Ponda-Cura seems to be a pretty rare and desirable med, one recently sold on Ebay for over $100US https://www.ebay.com/itm/3859942673...sHn39CbVRp9qA7kwa5yBi+3w==|tkp:Bk9SR4C25J3tYg I can't find any other info about that one whatsoever. Could you also post a pic of that beautiful amethyst whiskey in the back right of the first picture? I can't see the embossing on it but I bet that's gonna be a pretty good one as well.

That is great to know, thank you. Here is the amethyst bottle and a few more that I went back & picked up. The amethyst bottle reads Kellerstrauss Distilling Co St Louis MO. I can’t find anything on the cobalt blue bottle. I thought it was neat. It says Auto Polish, SIS Lab INC, NY USA. Very cool bottle…

I just listed the light lavender Ponda Cura medicine bottle for sale on eBay to see how it does, if anyone is interested. This will help me recoup some of the $$ I spent going to the estate sale 3 times. Lol! Thanks!

On your listing, I highly recommend making the title more specific. Something like "Ponda-Cura Medicine Cure Bottle 1900 Rare" or something like that. Many people search by keyword and with the generic title you have used they won't see it. Also, just my opinion, but putting a buy-it-now of it of say $100 wouldn't hurt as you are referencing a very recent sale of something just above that, which means that one potential bidder is not longer in the hunt.

I will update the listing. Thank you. Bottles are new to me, so I appreciate the guidance.
