Yankee Bottle Club is sponsoring the Keene NH Bottle Show on 10/13/19. Beautiful Fall Colors and great bottles. To those who might be going please take some photos and post them. I picked up this Dr. Pinkhams there 40+ years ago.

I used to have one years ago. Great bottle. I've gone to the Keene show once, about 20 years or so ago and would love to go back. Great show in beautiful country.

Collectors Weekly printed about 50 of these unused bottles were found in an old storehouse in the 1970's .That coincides with just about the time I purchased it. The one I have Doesn't seem to have been dug.

That's when I got mine, too. Did any of the examples have labels by any chance?

There were no photos with the article to indicate the bottles had labels.
