Found earlier today, a tiny sample bottle of Dr. Chase Kidney Liver Pills. I don't believe the bottle has ever been opened, as the cork is intact and there are two quack medicine pills inside. The label reads "Sample / Dr. Chase / Kidney-Liver / Pills / One Pill a Dose".

When would this date to, 1910-ish?

That's one I don't have in my "Free Sample" collection. It has been opened at one time because there are only two pills left. Is it Canadian? It probably dates to the first quarter if the 20th century.

Thanks for the replies. I didn't realize that there would have been three pills, originally, and yes, I do believe it's Canadian as it was found here in Ontario. As for the label, I'll carefully try the baking soda paste suggestion. Will let you know how it goes!

Actually I believe there were originally 4 pills due to the spacing. But, what does it really matter.

I wonder if that's the same Dr. Chase as the embossed Canadian patent med "Dr. Chase's Syrup Linseed & Turpentine" that I've got. It quite likely is.

To start, try the paste in only one tiny unseen spot for now-- in case the label doesn't like it. I've had mixed results.
